    I might be adding to my family this weekend!!

    I found a Singer 15-91 on Craigslist and tomorrow I'm going to take a look. I'm so excited to add a vintage beauty to my collection. Did some research and this model is highly rated for free motion quilting. Trouble is she won't fit in my craft room. I'm thinking about putting her in the grandkids room and use her in there. I'll be spread out all over the house. It's about an hours drive, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she comes home with me.

            We are ALL so very excited for you. I absolutely get all twitterpated when I get an old machine that works . . . and I have way too many and not enough room, but I still look and buy.

            PICTURES?

              She's home. I have her in the family room right now--she and I are fighting a little with tension. I going to let her rest after her long drive home and take a look when I have a little bit more light in the morning. I love the sound of these machines. Can't wait to do some serious sewing on her.

                        Too tired to even get the camera out. We missed our exit on the way home and it made our trip longer by one hour. "Mary" is resting too. That's what I'm naming her, since she was born June 6, 1955 (she's six months older than my hubby) and that was the number one girls name that year. I'll take some pics in the morning.

                            Meet Mary. I've ordered a free motion foot from Ebay and it's not here yet--so I haven't had a chance to quilt on her. I can't wait to give it try. I stippled a 50x60 throw on my Brother SE-350 and I was really struggling when I got to the center. Look and all that room in her harp and she's dropped in the table--I sure hope it makes a difference.

                              Me are SEW envious and jealous and . . . all those bad things. Now I'll have to scout around for one. Was not familiar with this model at all. Absolutely love her.

                              Mary, look around and meet Patsy and Kate.
