I haven't made any progress since some cutting on Friday (see my last post here... http://madakamom.blogspot.com/2013/11/black-friday-play.html
But that's because I drove to Indianapolis this weekend with the family to see the Colts vs Titans game. Unfortuantely for us, the Titans lost again. But it was a fun trip spending time with family.
We did make a couple of very important stops...
First, on the way to Indiana was a stop at the Goodwill in Bowling Green, KY where I snagged another handful of blue plaid shirts for my backing, one yellow, one green and a couple of neutral shirts for my stash.
But, even more exciting... on the way home we stoped at an antique mall boasting over 600 booths! (exit 76B off of I 65) I promised I would just make a quick run through to see if there was anything of major interest. An hour and a half later I hadn't seen even half of the booths, but I did spy many antique quilts and sewing machines... several Singers.. some in bentwood cases, 3 treadles, one iron Singer treadle table, a Morse, several Whites and.... be still my heart... TWO featherweights! They were both in excellent shape and locked behind glass doors. I thought long and hard, consulted with hubby and finally decided one just had to come home with me!
I paid a little more than I would have liked, but it was in excellent shape and I've been wanting one for some time.
Her serial number is AH 435380 which indicates she is a model 221-1 born January 1948...she looks real good for a senior citizen!
