    You have scored but how many brews did it take just kidding I see the Canadian? on the table!
    I noticed after I took the pic! Lazy woman would rather open the case than clean up from our "relaxing" the night before!

    Still ruminating on what her name should be! I saw the name Seraphina in a cemetery a while back. She died in the 1700's, but I REALLY liked the name!

    Seraphina Singer?

    Then again she is Scottish so she deserves a name that is Scottish? Me nerves. Last thing I named was my Sheltie... We are O'Briens so we wanted an Irish name. Finnigan was the easy choice... Canadians will remember that Mr. Dress-Up's puppet dog was also Finnigan...

    I think she is beyond beautiful! ( and I was not actively looking for a vintage machine...)

    Now that she is out should I offer it back to my sister? She really didn't seem to want it!

    Maybe I have more of an affinity for it because my grandmother taught me to sew when I was 7 or 8 on her old Singer treadle machine. My sister two years younger didn't get to use that machine because by the time she was old enough my grandmother was dying.
    Offer it back!!? RUOOYM!!! ?..... ;-)
