Friday -- The Weekend is almost here

A friend gave me an old treadle sewing machine in pretty bad shape.



 But Don worked magic-- and built a box for the top.... Now this 1913 Montgomery Ward Windsor piece has a home in my sewing room.



I've got to get to work--- looking at the blocks on the kitchen table-- You know where my heart is....

Off to support my habits....

Great machine, Melanie! Isn't it great to have a hubby who can help work wonders!!

I have an old Singer treadle that is in its cabinet and is 121 years old. I love it. All it's missing is the belt. It could use some shining up:) Sits in my living room since there's no room in the sewing room. It's a great piece.

Stay cool. It's gonna be 101 here today.

Beautiful!

Love what you said about supporting your habit. That's why retirement can never be an option!

I have never seen this particular brand machine before. I love old machines and wish I could have bunches of them. I sold or gave away my treadle machines when we downsized on our last move. Now just small ones.
