Quilting Newbie commented that she would like to see photos of the results of my organizing. Now, I'm always nervous about showing how "organized" I am (NOT), but here goes anyway.
The sewing machine on the bottom right of my new hutch belonged to my grandmother. It was manufactured in 1924, and I used it for many years to make garments. I haven't tried it lately, but I suspect it still sews beautifully. The decal is "La Vincendora". There's only one tiny problem with the machine - the foot pedal needs rewiring - because when I last used it, it decided it wanted to start sewing all by itself, without my foot on the pedal.
I found the jar of thread spools at an antique store in St. Jacob's, if I remember correctly. I'm oh so tempted to reach in and use some of them. There are even bobbins in there that will fit my lovely Sphinx treadle (but that's a picture for another day).
And the work continues...
