I bought this vintage gem of a New Home machine at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago. When I got home and plugged it in it ran, but would not stop. A friend in the HVAC department at work thought he could fix it, but we needed to work out a time for him to come get it with his truck. This morning I decided it must be able to come out of the cabinet, so, armed with a screwdriver, I set to work getting it out of the cabinet. Long story short; the motor now works with the knee bar! Yeah me! Now I have the challenge of finding a bobbin case for it.
I had made some last minute purchases at the Georgia Quilt Show when it was here. I couldn't let Primitive Gatherings and Auntie Ju's booths leave Atlanta without buying something.
Okay, let me explain this picture. Remember I was cleaning out that storage unit? I found a box of old karate belts that I'd collected from the karate school where I used to work in the 90s. I'd made a pillow case from karate belts back then, and I'd wanted to make something else too, but never got around to it. Last night I washed all the belts and hung them (all over the place) to dry. What am I going to do with them? Huh. I still don't know, but pictures will record whatever happens to them.
Kitten is just glad her favorite quilt is back from hanging in the shows.
