Screaming........

with excitement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
oh, boy was i EVER!!! Screaming!! i called a few people and screamed at them too!!!! -thanks for listening to that--
So what in the world was i all excited about (you thought i was angry, didn't you?) Well, before you start screaming at me.....here is a picture hint.......

It is just what you are thinking it is.


A Singer Feather Weight


No, it didn't arrive in the mail (that would be the logical guess since i have been recieving a few things). I found her at a YARD SALE!!!! yup, that's right. She sat there all lonely like, and i didn't even notice her until i was paying the gal for a few items..can you believe?..and there she was...on the table sitting in her box with the lid open. EEP! i almost jumped, but i held it together and asked in the calmest manner i could....how much for the sewing machine in the box? (in my mind i am thinking---ok, i'll spend how much? $50, $100...what is my limit?) but she said oh, um, how about $10 bucks!!!!!!!! I didn't type that wrong gals, TEN DOLLARS!!! So i handed her the money in a casual way- told the kids, lets go and while driving down the street screeched for JOY!!!
So here she is with all the goodies (a box with stuff she said she didn't need).


A button holer attachment, A Blind Stitch attachment, and something with a wheel that looks like it cuts -pinking sheer- not sure still what that is.


Here is her box. She came with her instruction manual, and a bunch of bobbins, an extra -sort of rusty bobbin case, and some misc extra stuff. The box has 2 oil cans and it DOESN'T stink!!
I haven't looked her up yet to see if she has any history. Just taking it slowly. She turns on, light works, and she stitches. She does get a bit tangled--need to work on that.
For right now, she sits. In the center of the dining room table. Being admired from everyone (really it's mostly just me). She gives me a smile. I need a name too. Any suggestions? I guess that means i will keep her. I am not sure that i will be able to top the purchase (even though the kids got a big set of legos for $2-good stuff). But, who's trying?


Have a good find you want to share? Let us all know. We like to hear those screams of joy!!

Speaking of screaming announcements...anita from florida got her 'in the leafy treetops quilt' DONE!!!! yay for you!!! i love the nest and the batik leaves, and the branches look more realistic than mine. i'd like to know the sectret.....Great job. Turned out Perfect don't you think?

*pst--don't forget to sign up for the postcard swap. We would love to have you come play! Cheap swap girls, cheap swap. That's how i like them. :)
**pst pst-- did you make your own photo stitchery? Share it at the flickr group--- we all want to see how it turned out.

Wow! wow! holy cow!!! If that person had any idea what she was throwing away........
Good for you. And it's great that someone got it that will love and appreciate it!!! Looks like you hit the jackpot today! Good for you! The great thing about them is, there isn't anything you can't replace; and most of it you can buy the part from someone online and replace it yourself.

that is an awesome deal, I always keep my eye out for them at yard sales and they are either too much $ or in bad shape. Lucky you! Love seeing all the other leafy tree top quilts, that one is great!

Oh my! What a great find! Congratulations! BTW - that "tangled" thing you mentioned - often is a burr on the rotary hook (from getting hit by the needle from sewing over pins) which is easily taken care of by using jeweler's rouge (VERY fine sandpaper. Maybe you already knew this but thought I'd toss it in just in case :-)
