    Well I was just sitting down in my easy chair this evening after working on machines all day and my wife asked me if I wanted these photos I took of a sewing machine. :shock: After looking at them I realized that it was a machine I finished up for Donna aka Rumbols.

    So I am going to post them to let you get a peek at the finished product. It is a Black base coat with a Red Pearl mid coat then cleared over that. Because of the setting sun it looks more brownish but it is really a Black Cherry Color.

    Oh something I forgot about mentioning is that the machine comes with its original warranty card and the receipt from 1932 that you got for a free class on how to use the machine.

    You know Donna hasnt even seen it yet so you all very special!! I am fixing to paint another Handcrank but I am not sure what color to do it in. I am leaning towards a softer Pink or maybe a deep Purple.

    Billy, you are an artist! We spend hours with our sewing machines, and combining usefulness and beauty together
    is a wonderful thing. Really inspiring.

    WOW!!!!! Billy, you are absolutely AMAZING!!!! The sun does make it look brown, but brown is the color of chocolate so who can complain about that, huh???!!!! You say the color is black cherry so add that to the "chocolate," and you get black cherry chocolate!! That's one pretty yummy combination that I could devour without any hesitation!!!!!

    Billy, Thanks for posting. I have been wandering what she would look like. I can't wait to get my hands on her.
    Thanks for all your hard work. You are really an artist with machines.

    Its sitting in its little box snuggled up ready for the trip to your house. I will drop it off Monday morning along with several other machines and parts and it will be on its way. But the machine is Black as Black can be until the light hits it just right then the Red pops out at you.
