    DH said I could load the back of a truck with what I carry in my purse.

    Some purses make pretty good tool boxes...

    If the opposite is true - don't you just love how a sewing machine runs... I tried to post an ad tongue in cheek for a sewing machine and CL flagged me. I suppose I have had machines sounded about what this one must sound like though.

    That is one gorgeous machine! The decals (and everything else) are in great shape. I can just imagine it clicking along, hardly making a sound. If someone here gets the machine I hope we get a full report!

    Billy; Off topic of course but love your new avatar. That is a precious picture. Quilt looks lovely, too. ~ Chris
    Thank you, I made that quilt for my little Lola. She was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and I made her a quilt just for her to snuggle in. When it came time to put her to sleep made sure I buried her in it so she would always have me hugging her and would not feel alone. But she really loved it and I would take it to our bedroom and she would lay on it all snuggled up with just her little head poked out.

    That one is a really hard screw to find! Singer threads were proprietary and there is not another screw out there that will fit it but that one screw. I do not remember where I found the few I have but they are worth their weight in gold!

    It would be nice to see someone get it. I checked the exchange rate - the postage is the killer! I do love it - it's my very favorite design of all - love the turquoise!

    There is an auction coming up here on Saturday, and the preview pics show a Singer bentwood case, but they didn't open it. Grrr! I can't get to the preview, so I'm going to tell my mother to take a small flat screwdriver with her. :)
    AH I am not the only woman running around with a couple screwdrivers!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I'd have a whole toolbox in my purse...which is why I carry a tiny purse. :)
