    Hello Everyone! I've been out of pocket for a while now. Just wanted to drop in and say hello and give you a quick update on me. I'm still doing Cardiac Rehab and I saw my Cardiologist yesterday. I was given a clean bill of health. He said they couldn't have fixed me any better. That's great news. I'm trying to get caught up on my reading and hope to get back to sewing again soon.

    Yes, I love the quietness of my 201. No other machine that I have sewn on sews this quietly. Last night when I got Mr. Two Spools running, I was a bit startled by the sound (been piecing with the 201), and then I chuckled. I was sewing with a "cowboy" of a machine, very rugged. When not watching the news or a movie while piecing, I will use Mr. Two Spools and listen to gallop.:)

    I love looking at all your lovely machines. I am developing a deeper appreciation for the older "ladies and gents"!

    DH picked this up from CL for $15. It looks scary to me too.
    I can think of lots of ways to use it!!! To begin with, I'd have the nicest sheets and pillowcases in town. . . .
