This machine is a Singer 15-91 manufactured November, 20 1953 in Elizabeth NJ.
The first vintage machine I ever purchased, in all it's dusty grimy glory. That's right, I said first. I have 3 others and I am going to pick up another 15-91 tomorrow, but mainly so I have the cabinet to sit this one in. Well... unless the one we look at tomorrow is in better shape than this one, (fingers crossed), then I will have to decide which one to use!This machine is supposed to be nice for free motion quilting so I am excited to see how it compares to sewing on my newer, electronic Kenmore. I also have a couple more vintage singer models on my wish list I hope to run across someday...

DH is working on the rewiring and cleaning up now, I need to order polish and clean up the outside and then one day... hopefully... we will have more pictures.
Next in line for before pictures - my Singer 201-2, these ladies will eventually need names too...
I will have to show you Eleanor sometime, she is not a Singer, but born in Japan and quite beautiful!
Even though I have too many projects going on and my brain is overflowing I have decided to participate in the Modify Tradition Mini Quilt Swap. This will be my first swap, hey I had to try it one of these days right? I am actually very excited about who I am going to be making my quilt for. Should allow for some excessive creativity and I like that :)
Now for whoever has my name here is some extra info if you need it. I really have an appreciation for all types of quilts. The only things I am not really into are a lot of purple or a lot of pastel. I like happy colors. My favorite color is teal, but I also love green. Some examples of different fabrics I like are Kaffe Fasset, Tula Pink, Anna Maria Horner, Heather Bailey, Heather Ross, Japanese and Retro prints but really, surprise me! I also love solids mixed with prints, but I also love it when many busy prints work together.
Some other things about me, I like gardening, I watch Days of Our Lives, Fringe, glee, The Office, Grey's Anatomy, True Blood, Dexter, OK way too many TV shows...
I like things that are sparkly, shiny, bright, glow in the dark or that light up. I like food... I also believe that making the bed and folding laundry should only be done for special occasions. Until I became a mom, I had always had a job (or two). Sewing, gardening and chocolate are just some of the ways I survive - this domestic bliss.
