    I'm glad you're enjoying it, too. It makes me sad to see people put their quilt away and not use it.

It says on the front that it was made in Rockport Illinoise and there are two medallions on it with naked ladies on them! yep..naked as jaybirds! The one on the left says: Expositione Universelle" and the one on the right says " Republique Francoise". Can anyone tell me anything about this beautiful lady?
    My hubby would love the one with the naked ladies.

    I have this same machine. I think you can call Janome for information on it. I believe the model is NLR. New Home, Light Running. I have this in a treadle model and mine is missing its bobbin case

    Wilbur's test came back - not a super bug! But he does have strep and staph infections. He's still terrorizing his sisters with his diaper sounds...

    Miriam - what good news from the test result! I am happy for you all. Diaper sounds must be great fun for the little fellow! I hope he is back to himself real soon.

    Miriam, good to hear - though it's strange to see "strep and staff infections" treated as the lesser evil. I know they are but those are wicked enough all on their own.

    Miriam, good to hear he is doing better and also that it's not a super bug. Those super bugs are nasty things.

    Hey Miriam, so glad Wilbur is better. He is my kind of little man love that he enjoy messing with the little girls. Sounds like something I would do now.

    Miriam, Glad the little one is on the mend. Must be feeling better if he gets a kick out of teasing his sisters. Hope he is all better real soon.

    Dr extended his antibiotic prescription - I hope he is better soon, too. His big sisters will be glad of it too, I'm sure.

    Miriam,

    That is truly wonderful news about Wilbur. (Never thought that I'd say wonderful when referring to strep and staph.)

    Miriam this is great news, even though, he is still very sick!

    Giggle, very pretty New Home Light Running machine. I had one exactly like yours that I sold for parts. Mine was black, but it had the same naked lady emblem on the inside of the arm. I sold my machine for parts because getting parts for those machines is nearly impossible! Mine was missing the whole bobbin assembly. You are lucky your machine is complete!

    I can't tell you how happy we all are that prayers have been answered and we know that he will return to normal soon. Don't forget to get him on those probiotics that someone else recommended; they restore the normal flora in the bowel that the antibiotics kill.

    Miriam, thanks for the good news on Wilbur. So much better than having a super bug. It's good to hear that he's teasing his sisters.
    Laura, I like what you did with the sewing table. Can you put a poly finish or something like it over the paint to make it more durable? I'm asking, as I don't know it they will work or not, but it might help keep the finish looking great and also smooth. I'd like to find one similar to that for all of my portables too.

    I'd like to find a table like that too. I like a flat surface like a cabinet gives you but I have no more room for cabinets. A table like that would be a blessing.

    Miriam,

    That does not surprise me at all. I looked and looked and looked at the goodies you have there and I'm sure I didn't see a tenth of them.

    It's ok Joe I can't find anything either. We moved stuff around the other day - now you can walk through - I still have to clean the shop some more. LOL... I set out to yesterday and got called in to work for the real job... some idiot put time in but didn't show up last week - the truth caught up to her. Now I just have to get more done today. I think I have more Kenmore sewing machine tables than Machines - I wonder what they all go to... I'm about to put up a sale of stuff I don't want - the place is driving me crazy.

    This is what I found at our quilt show in Fort Dodge Iowa last week for only $10.00. My 201 works great in it. Just a little deep, but for now I just put a book under it to make it level with the top.

    Since I saw the first one of those tables on this forum I've been looking for one. So far no luck. I'll keep looking.

    I am going to be painting my Cadet Singer sewing cabinet, which was a blonde wood cabinet. The previous owner tried to stain it. So, I have been looking to find something that would look fresh, and elegant, if that is possible with painting wood? These cabinets look very nice! I am thinking of a burnt orange color, or just black.

    Good Luck on your quest for a table like that. I have one that I bought 45 years ago and it was second hand then. Paid $7 for it, quite a bit for those days. They are handy.

    I used to have a table just like yours, gave it to a friend and sadly her house burned to the ground last year in the Steiner Ranch,TX fire. I used the table with my Bernina 1031, wish I still had the table. I think I paid about $50 for it in 1992.
