Default New to Me Singer 301A

A dear friend brought this machine to me for my 70th birthday. I was beyond surprised. When you've had as many birthdays as I've had, it's hard to be surprised.. I was Beyond Surprised. and I kept telling myself "don't cry,, don't cry." but I did just a little.

Her Hubby is a "machine finding wizard" and he makes them purr like brand new. She often gives them away to friends and other quilters. I named her after my friends last name and the middle name of her young grand daughter. I like to give my machine names that have meaning.

Introducing Peri Rose. Isn't she a beauty!

Happy birthday. I hope you enjoy Peri Rose as much as I do AnnieRose and ErinRose, my 301s.
