    OMG! The stove reminds me of the one we had in our kitchen when I was a kid. It was crammed in next to the drainboard for the sink - about 24 inches of room between them. We did not have hot water, so most nights it was fired up heating water for cooking and heating water for dishes, laundry or baths. I have not so fond memories of burning my elbows when I brushed up against it while drying dishes! Believe it or not, that was in the early 1960's.

    I know exactly how excited you are - I was totally blissed out when I found my treadle. So congratulations and may you sew many fine quilts together!
