New to me, that is. I bought this machine a while back at the online Goodwill shop. It's been sitting out in the garage patiently waiting for Mr. Muddling to bring it back to working order. He did that this weekend! What a pleasure this one is to sew on - smooth, quiet and the stitches are perfection. It's a Singer 201, made in 1940. There is a very informative article about this machine here.
There is just something about these very old machines that makes me happy. For one thing, I am impressed that something 73 years old works so well! There's hope for me.
As you can see there is quite a large pile of "units" to assemble into quilt blocks.
Here, some of them have grown into more churn dash blocks. I'm hoping to get these assembled into a quilt for our bed, now that I have a frame big enough to accomodate it.
By the way, I had no idea who the Basic Math quilt should go to, but Mr. Muddling had told me that he wanted a quilt (or quilts!) to give away, too. I told him he could give this one and he knew who it should be given to right away. We did that yesterday and made one little lady very happy!
There was rain right before I got up this morning - not a lot, but refreshing to the landscape nonetheless. I let the chickens out for a bit of a ramble. They do love to see what's new.
I hope you have a wonderful week! I think I'm going to go play with my new toy for a while.
Hugs and kisses,
