    I'm so excited!!!!!

    I came home after spending the whole day painting my quilting room ceiling in the quest to get rid of the smoke smell and also seeing the four new kittens that were born yesterday at my new house. (Momma belonged to previous owners who never came back to get her as they said they would). Took my shower and sat down here to catch up and check my email.

    In my email was a notification from ebay that we have new items matching the description "Morse Sewing Machine". And.....there she was ....the beautiful pink 50's model Morse that I have been wanting!!!! BUY IT NOW! - you got it, I considered whether to make the leap for about .327 of a second before hitting that button. It's Not too far away (Orlando area) and should be here this week.

    She already has a name - Marilyn Rose. I had planned on naming her Rose, for obvious reasons, and then I saw on Bonnie Hunter's blog that she has one named Marilyn - my Mom's name. I added the Rose to it, and then it hit me - my Mom's grandmother who taught her to sew was Rose. So, no brainer, Marilyn Rose she is. I'm still considering names for my Blue one.

            Congratulations!!!! My mother had a pink ABC machine when I was growing up. It was made by Singer and branded ABC for a private label. She kept it until the 1980's. I don't know what ever happened to it.

              Congrats on the new baby Donna. I don't know if I should congratulate you on the new kittens though.

                  If you like Gone With the Wind, you can name her Bonnie Blue after Rhett and Scarlett's daughter.

                    Rhonda, it's so funny you say that! I was thinking about "Donnie Blue" since my Dad's name was Donald (always went by "Don").

                      Yeah, I love kittens, but "unwanted" litters are not good. My DD works at the SPCA so she will take them there, get them fixed and find them homes. Momma will be fixed ASAP, too.
