    Is this one of the "New Homes' worth looking at? This one is only about 10 minutes from me.

    Thanks!

    The first one is a Davis it didn't have a date but the serial # is 2751431. The 2nd one DH got because he likes fiddle base machines. It is a Singer VS2 dated 1889. This machine is sitting on our new Singer Red Eye. Haven't taken a pic of it yet.
    Trish, nice Davis and VS2, but what is the big Singer in the background? I see a second fiddle base in the picture too?

    First Nancy I want pictures of your new machines. One of the machines is a Singer that takes cams. Not sure of what model. It belongs to my beloved Aunt and I will get it when she is gone. The second is a 1958 Pfaff. It belongs to my mother
    and it will be mine also when she is gone. Kathie.
    Kathie, what model is the Pfaff? A 130? Everyone here knows my Mother's one and only machine was her Pfaff 130.

I look ready for Halloween. DG (age 4) asked me if I was melting. AND DH has one little tiny poison ivy bump. Everybody else takes Benedryl and sleeps. Not me - I get wired. My mom told me once there was some kind of centennial celebration when her and her 5 brothers and sisters sat on the ground at a park. They all got poison ivy all over their butts. I think I'm going to get a goat to eat that ivy off the fence. Thanks for listening to me vent - I gotta go hang some more sheets.
    Geeze Miriam, you are great at describing how it feels to have poison ivy! I am just getting over a much smaller case of poison oak! My poor daughter is also trying to get over a much worse - than I had it - case of poison oak! I was so depressed after loosing my little Tarzan that I went out and trimmed poison oak for 4 hours on our horse trails with a tank top and shorts on! Very dumb! Anyway, I only got it where I got scratched by the branches as they were falling all over me. My horse was eating it as fast as she could and dragging her halter and lead rope all through the stuff. My daughter came over to ride the next day and got the same halter I had used out to put on her horse - and, guess what, she got it really bad all over her arms from that halter! She was not real happy with me!

    Oh and Miriam, be careful with scratching that stuff or it could scar!

    It is an industrial from about 1896. Couldnt find any more info. Found it in a barn up north. Very rusty, used wire wheel on most of it, machine and irons. Just cleaned and poly on the wood. I have the original wooden pitman, but is missing a small chunk of wood on one end, so not sure what i'll do with that. Color is raspberry. I just love the table. DH figured out how the leaf worked and we got it working like new.
    Ok, now I am really interested. I'd like to see a larger picture of that "raspberry" machine!

    The other machine is a Singer 66. Both are frozen and all the plated parts are rusted. But the decals on the 66 Redeye are very nice.

    since I am going to try and get at least the 66 sewing again, they gave them both to me for FREE!!!

    Oh well, more machines to clean and practice on.
    Lisa, I can't wait to see the after pictures! You need Evaporust for sure!
