    Hubby didn't want me to put cleaned machine back in filthy cabinet so WE spent Labor day working on it.

    didn't even know there was gold under all that black dirt!

    Wow she sure looked sad in that first picture. Looks like shes coming along and is going to shine when you're finished putting her back together.

    My hubby helped only on the cabinet, and he couldn't beleive that I would ever get her back together, but as you can see....I can even make her sew. I guess I will name her Audrey as that was my grandpa's sisters' name. So meet Audrey

    Wow, that is incredible. I bet you can't quit looking at it in all it's glory and she (name) is beaming with pride. Great job.
