Looking for my Fat Quarter Shop Giveaway? Go here! Win some Tula Pink NightShade!! Closes Tomorrow! While I was in Australia, my "new" machine came in the mail. This past week, I have had a chance to begin cleaning it and get the process rolling to getting it running well and put in my Craigslist cabinet. I decided to purchase a Vintage Singer 201-2 from ebay. I am anxious to learn about how to thread it and wind the bobbins... I took apart and cleaned the tension knob yesterday - oh the joys of Vintage!! Super thankful for the internet and the lovely vintage singer owners who share their information ;).  

taking the metal plates off and cleaning it up

Yay, it fits! Very excited to have a flat sewing surface. I'm headed out to the hardware store today for some primer and paint for this cabinet. I think turquoise is in my future ;).
