My Husband Bought Me A Treasure

Saturday, April 5, 2008
When my husband goes to an auction, he often brings me home "treasures". You know what I mean, pots and pans, a desk, (which I absolutely love)Adirondack lawn chairs. I love green, I collect sewing machines, so look what he bought me. (Lots of laughing and rolling on the floor here) Someone redid the cabinet and bench in a green. Not an UGLY green thank goodness. And the machine is very nice, a Singer 15-91 made in 1948. She sews well, and the decals are in very nice shape. A little cleaning and oiling and I have a wonderful new "treasure".

I loaded the light/dark heartstrings quilt today and I am quilting it using Keryn Emmerson's Limetree panto. It's not too fussy, and it flows nicely. Just what I was looking for to put on a man type quilt.

That looks like a nice little machine. How does she run?

I like this pantograph Lori, thanks for the link. Love the new machine too. I've been toying with the idea of looking for one but with the new townhouse, I'll need a shoehorn to get the things we already have to fit so I guess I'll do without.

Mary you need to learn to think sideways, its not a sewing machine its a SIDETABLE.

What a beautiful machine!! Of course, the green drew me in too. ;) I think I need to start getting my 15-91 in usable condition. A little courage, a good cleaning, a new belt and it should be ready for piecing. Maybe it'll be a lot of cleaning... I know it hasn't been used since before I was born. :P

Lovely little machine, what a nice present to get. Can you ever have too many machines?

Glad you like Limetree,it's one of my favourites too.

I love your cutting table in the last post, it's great to have items with that much history attached.
