    Let's see, Sara, Belle, Louella, Myrtle, Ginnie, Molly, Audrey, Velma. I don't name them till they are all cleaned, fixed, and being used. The other eight have to wait.
    Life is made up of bits and pieces. You won't know how it'll turn out till its done.

    Oh yes, mine are named Opal and Esther, they are the twins. Then I have big mama and babe,the janomes. Mt T, the treadle. Matilda & Silvie, the 15's. and Lucy , 99. Then sweet pea, my toy singer. Got a 403 coming today, so I got to find a name for her/him. I got to quit buying them though.

    Yes, I have called mine that name a few times, when it unthreads of makes a mess on the back. Restraint is needed and sometimes it gets my blood hot. Are the initials "S_B"? I don't drink, but when it acts up, I consider starting.

    the kids in a school down south named my FW--Black Pearl. I sent some fabric and thread to a lady on the board who was teaching some military kids in school down there how to sew.
