Welcome to the Quilting Board!

Oh, it was a dangerous thing to do indeed.....
Two "crazy" fix it types in a house full of projects.... coulda be bad, very bad....
Thank you Steve and Mizkaki. I hope to spend some time with her over the holidays.
Here are pictures of my early Christmas presents. The first one is a sweet Wilcox - Gibbs, chain stitch machine, with the cutest butterfly foot pedal, and tiny butterfly feet. She was $65 at a local gift store, I will have to wait until I get brave enough to try her (after the holidays I will have time).
My next one is a singer Sphinx, G347 from 1913-1915. I love her, she needs lots of oiling, and degreasing. Hubby's next project. Her name is Adeline.
If life gives you lemons, make a margarita.
