 Tuesday Treasure……it is still in three pieces, but one day it will be re-assembled……this singer belonged to my DH’s grandmother…. it was living in a garden shed at his parents home…it had nails hammered into the top and it was in very bad shape……We were not sure if we could restore it at all, even Mr. W thought it was only good for the tip……but Mr. W. took it home and with lots of elbow grease and tender loving care he was able to bring it all back to life for me…..so this is another of our family treasures……..Clare will have a list on her blog of other treasures…..so pop over and have a look…

Gorgeous sewing machine - I learnt to sew on something similar when I was young - Love the way they used to make practical things so decorative.

Thanks for sharing

Circles are my favourite - your sewing looks beautiful.
