    Last Friday my friend, my daughter in law and I took a short road trip to "Thayer Rags" in Fredrick, Oklahoma....... what fun we had ..... and education on antique sewing machines we got ... CD we learned alot ........ got some great buttons and wow nice fabric .... but girls I got me a hand crank singer ...... OMG I love it ...... if you guys ever to get Oklahoma look up these fantastic hometown folks .... thanks CD and Marlene ....
    we will be back!!!!!!
    Then Saturday my hubby and I decided to take a ride and check on the progress our adopted son is making on his Donut shop in Hobart Oklahoma, I walked across the street to the antique store and the reward was my new spool show case .... what a wonderful weekend ..... made up for the blood sugar drop on Friday night that sent me into memories of STEEL MAGNOLIAS !!!!!! Wish I had had some orange juice !!!!!!

    I envy you guys that can use a hand crank. For me it's like rubbing my tummy and patting my head at the same time--just can't do it! :lol: Congrats!

    Wow that machine looks NICE!!!
    I'm jealous about the spool box you found. At least it went to someone that will love it...
    You did well grasshopper lolol.. ;)
    One question though, you said that your son has a donut shop? Ask him to try a Maple Bar with a thick piece of chrispy bacon on it. OMG it is to die for!!!! :thumbup:
    Have fun with your new goodies...
    :XD:

    I would love to have a hand crank machine like the one you got. Great to take in the car, use when electric goes out, take to watching your grandchildren play a sport, let's see, I know I have one more, great to take to a craft show where you are selling items you have sewn. How much does something like this cost?

    I am green, I have been looking for a spool case for ever, since seen two of them in a collectors show hall. No, she would not sell even one.
