H-9 SNOWFLAKE MELT AND J-13 PAM’S BELLS
I also ‘acquired’ a ‘new to me’ 221K1 Singer Featherweight. Conceived 28th April 1952 Serial # EH 241222 :-D Alas, the motor didn’t appear to work so I have sent it off to a Gent in London Mr Graham Forsdyke who hopefully will be able to fix it. He has a great website here:- www.singer-featherweight.com(at least I hope this is the correct addy as I couldn’t check it out because my Mozilla is being a pain)
Anyway, he has absolutely LOOOOAAADSS of info on his website.
Oh and nearly forgot ;-D here is the new baby:-
and just for the crack here is one that I was totally obsessed about working on yesterday:-
It is a Jones CS handcrank Circa. sewing machine approx 1890s, that I ‘acquired’ there’s that word again ;) A couple years ago.
I had no idea how to thread the shuttle bobbin until yesterday. Many hours spent researching on the net and a cat lick of a clean and here it is. I even managed to wind thread on a bobbin pin and sew with it :)) so I’m a happy bunny. Oh what the ‘eck here’s another picture of the beautiful rose decals:-
Isn’t it gorgeous!!! It needs more work in the cleaning department and the wood work needs some TLC but hopefully this is a good start.
That’s me for now. It’s a gorgeous day to be outside so when DH gets himself dressed I think I’ll twist his arm to do some de-cluttering of the garage and clean the car. Both are in serious need of doing!!
