Lots of life happenings with my family in the last week or so. Here is a quick update. My father in law had quadruple by-pass surgery last Monday. We made a rushed trip down to Texas to be with him and my mother in law. FIL is now back at home, recovering. I'll be headed back down to Texas on Wednesday (poor hubby has to stay here).
We rushed back home so that hubby could be in a wedding this past weekend.

Not the best picture, but, I don't really like pictures of myself. Hubby is very handsome, isn't he!
Before the wedding, while hubby was waiting around for pictures and such, I had lots of time to kill. I spent my time well. First, I voted early, since I won't be home on Election day. Then, I headed to a nearby thrift store to kill more time. As soon as I walked in, I saw this....
|Singer in bentwood case|
|1925 Singer 99 electric|
|very dirty, with tape as a seam guide (NOT 1/4")|
|I've never seen a foot pedal like this one. It is Singer|
|Singer motor, it works, but, it needs rewiring and a new belt|
|some of the things that came with the machine|
|Singer light, needs rewiring, at the least|
|attachments that came with the machine|
|isn't her face pretty!|
The bentwood case came with a key. I haven't checked to see if it will lock or not. Too much cord, etc in the way. I'm thinking of rewiring the motor, and also purchasing a hand crank and slotted hand wheel, so that I can also hand crank this lady. I've never rewired a motor before.
This machine is the sister to my Singer Spartan 3/4 size machine. 99's were made before (and after) Spartans, which are also 3/4 size machines. Wow, 3 new (to me) machines to clean up and play with! Sew much fun!
