Yet Another Gem


While preparing my mother-in-law’s home for sale we came across her electric sewing machine.  Questions arose as to whom would adopt the machine.  My immediate reaction was “Not Me!”  I really don’t have room for another piece of furniture and besides I’m trying to downsize.  As time went by and I pondered the vintage machines I have adopted, refurbished and passed on to my daughters I began to sense this was yet another sewing machine in need of rescue.

From there my thoughts shifted to how and when can I take it home.  Yesterday the aqua sewing machine with its tiny plain wooden cabinet arrived in my garage.  The cabinet, as was the case with every other machine that I have fostered, is in need of refurbishing.  Due to the small size of the cabinet and the simple design I believe this one I can tackle myself.

The timeline for the restoration has not yet been set.  Once the project begins I will keep you abreast of the progress.  In the meantime I will begin my research trying to find out as much about the machine as possible.  I must also find a suitable place in my home for the machine to reside.  Stay tuned for future updates.If you have any details about this machine I would appreciate hearing your information.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I’m linking up with Freshly Pieced.  Make sure you visit her blog to see the magnificent projects the other quilters are working on.
