Spent the morning at the Court House waiting to see if I had to serve on a jury. Was told to come back on the 27th and the lawyers will pick 15 people out of 200 of us. If I am chosen it will be a murder trial lasting about a week. On the way home I got a call from my sewing machine man and my machine was ready. It was making a noise and at first they thought it was a transformer….turned out there was lint inside. He told me to use canned air to clean it. Surprised me. I was told never to do this as the air blows it into the machine. My man said to use air and angle it up to blow lint up and out of machine. Our hunt for a teeny tiny vacuum and there is no such thing. BUT I have my good machine back and working perfectly.
Came across this wonderful treasure when going through some of my Mother in law’s things after her death. We found this in a cardboard box in the basement. My Father in law’s mother made this for him for his first Christmas. More to come tomorrow.
