    Thank you. We just returned from going to town. As soon as the groceries were put away, DH went right back out to the workshop. He has a new bowl he is designing and putting together. LOL It makes me so happy that he has a hobby that he is lovin'.

    He does take time to build me new tables, cabinets, etc. or whatever I need for sewing.

    Thanks jljack. You mentioned that your DH does woodworking. Do you have any of his work posted on this board?

    Guy's Pat and I went antiqueing today and found several sewing machines in good shape. Davis treadles with cabinets in very good shape with only cleaning and waxing needed the head needs a little cleaning but decals are good. A Free VS electric in nice cabinet. All machines had the attachments and original manual. Priced from 85 to 125. They also had a FW complete with case manual and attachments and all that went with it for $265 the machine decals are in great shape. Of course + tax. If any member is interested let me know. I did not buy a thing you see I have two Davis already and love them. I also have a FW.

    Anyone that needs to do this to a machine to remember how to thread it, needs a different hobby!!! The 301 is one of the most basic machines you can own and to give it the measles is soooo creepy. I mean, come on now!! http://www.ebay.com/itm/ANTIQUE-VINT...#ht_500wt_1221

    I wonder if they have stickers on their door knobs saying door knob?

    Skippin' Glenn, I am blown over by your miniature furniture! Wayyyy toooo cool!

    It doesn't pay to miss day around here! Were your crocheted spool pin doillies posted somewhere on this thread? I wanna see them. Please?

    Full of questions today. Did you make both regular size and miniature furniture? Or you copied the regular sized furniture? Cool no matter which way you slice it.

    Candace,

    Not defending such an atrocity, but you think it's possible somebody did that as a teaching / learning aid?

    Although if they did that I wouldn't be surprised if they had all their car controls labeled.

    Charlee would you please post a pic of the spool pin covers I made for sew extremeseams. I gave all min away have not made anymore. I made the miniature from the regular furniture in the wifes parlor. I have made large regular furniture but don't do it anymore since retiring so make on the 1/12 scale now. I am always making small furinture by hand because it is fun. All are hand carved and turned, no kits here.

    looks like the kind of things my kids did when learning to read/write. Or maybe the owner had had a stroke or other head injury- sometimes excessive labling helps folks cope after a brain injury. but, I'm guessing someon's darling grandchild did it, and it was left there as an indulgence!

    Smile mini furniture and wood turned bowls

    Such talent and it's so fun that you share your crafts with us. I am a fan of both. My DH makes minis but they are always native american type things and he does a wonderful job for a man with big hands. lol I also never miss an episode of the wood turning shop on PBS. Fascinates me to watch a chunk of wood turn into such art. Beautiful, thanks for sharing. Been recovering from carpal tunnel surgery on primary hand so I haven't gotten much done in the last couple of weeks but it's sure nice to have this board to read and keep up with everybodys finds and fun.

    Peeking in a bit to say hi to everyone--I haven't had a lot of time lately but have been trying to keep up! I had to stop and compliment Glenn on his miniatures. I am in awe of the skill and patience it must take to work on something that small.

    Linda, your husband's bowls are really beautiful too. The natural contrasts between the different types of wood is neat to see. It must take a lot of precision to get all those little pieces to fit together so well!
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Glenn,
    I would love to have a Davis if it was the later models that take a 15x1 needle. Course I'd need a Pony Express since I'm in Texas and you're in Alabama.

    Glenn your doll furniture is very nice. My mom had a doll house collection and made a lot of the things that went into her houses. Even built the houses altho they were from a kit. I remember one day she was making an old wood cook stove and needed something to make the pipe out of and used a ell shaped pvc plumbing fitting and painted it black. Also made all kinds of flowers and veggies using flour and water. So I can appreciate all the work you put into your pieces and it shows.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.
