    Ohhhhh, Pretty !!! Thanks for sharing. I copied the pictures so I have a better idea of what she should have looked like. I keep hoping to be able to reproduce some decals, but haven't got there yet.

    The cleanup is not progressing. I think Grandma had a oil burning space heater or a wood burning fireplace. My guess is the oil burner. I've cleaned this kind of thing before in my MIL's house fifty+ years ago. Yeesh. I think I'm going to turn the machine around and start on the back in case I get too overzealous. I haven't tried too many products yet so I'm going shopping today. The bobbin winder needs to come off. I got the small screw, but the big one won't budge so far. I'm glad there's no hurry. If it takes all winter, then it just does.

    I love that it has a little horse and buggy in the scene.

    I do too--now you know why I spent too much money on it!! The parlor cabinet is lovely as well. I have had this for a couple of years, and still haven't cleaned up the machine or repaired the leather strap that lifts it up. Ah well--only 4 1/2 years to retirement!!

    Try PB Blaster on the big screw. It stinks, so spray a little in the lid and "paint" it on the stuck screw. Soak it good and let it sit. Good stuff!!!

    I'm thinking it isn't black but I see a motor so it isn't a 401

    Miz Johnny The bed decal makes it all worth going over budget. Very nice New Home machine.

    Haven't heard from the seller from my previous post yet, so it's still a mystery machine to me. I am leaning toward a 66 from what I've seen on the Sew Classic blog and on Ismacs about the #72 Singer cabinet. I looked at my 15-91 with the lid open, and it just doesn't look quite like that.
