    Finished the cabinet and Singer 99k.

    Hubby put the cabinet all back together and we set the machine in again. I think it refinished nicely! Now I want to do some piecing with her. She's still nameless, any suggestions?Name:  Late 2011-Early 2012 097 (Small).jpg

    Cute! I have a 99 in the same cabinet, but it is in much rougher shape. I'm in the process of figuring out what I want to do with it. Very nice job on the cabinet!
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    I like those little 99s - looks nice and you have a very nice cabinet - usually see those in a case.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
    good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first

    No, I don't have any before pictures. The cabinet was solid and looked pretty good, except the top had water damage and was very rough. We chose a darker stain color. The machine only needed some polishing up and a cleaning and of course oiling.

    jillnjo,
    She's beautiful! The cabinet looks terrific, too. Good job hubber.

    Since you choose to put your avatar quilt on her for her photo shoot, maybe 'Ava' would be appropriate???

    best,
    deb
    My best is the least I can do.

    Name for your 99

    I have a 99K which also needs a name. Since he is so heavy and cute, I have decided to name him "Thomas, the Tank".

    She is nice! I have a 99k that was given to me.. She is now called JuJu after Art's wife.... Judy. But I was thinking on calling her Midgie after all she is only 3/4 size so I thought of Midget... my JuJu is in the carry case.
