Two more days and I have to go back to work. Ugh. This two weeks off has made we long for retirement. For once, I'm too young for something. Darn.

Yesterday I was sewing with friends at a retirement community. I bought a singer treadle machine in their RAF shop (Resident's assistance Fund). I got the machine and a big box of old notions for $40.00. The machine needs some work, but, I think that I got a good deal on it.

I wanted the notions because I remember an article in the latest Quilting Arts Magazine.. or maybe it is Cloth Paper Scissors now that I think of it. Hmmm... Had something to do with using old notions to make artwork. My camera battery died just after I took photos of the machine so I will put up some photos of what I got later.

Here is a picture of Sam on his sewing room bed. He loves this pillow, and knows how to make himself comfortable.

That looks exactly like the one I learned to sew on when I was a tyke. I am envious--I would love to find a treadle machine.

A very good deal, Teri. I have one like that, but I had to pay more than $40! Jen

Isn't it funny when animals get in their comfy positions and they look anything *but* comfortable?

Great find on the sewing machine!
