February 9, 2016 ~ My Childhood Singer Sewing Machine
"The soul is healed by being with children.”
This is my child’s Singer Sewing Machine, and it still works just fine with the side hand crank. It is one of my childhood treasures. I am one of those people that could not give any of my things away.Other than bits of rust, it is in amazing condition. Remember I am 77 now, and I was given this when I was probably three so I could sew with my mother.I was also given a traveling minister’s folding pump organ, but it's somewhere in my daughter’s barn, and there is no way I am going to endanger myself snooping around in there trying to get a photo of it. I took music lessons on it, and we had to replace the heavy cloth that connected the foot pumps to the bellows several times. I loved that little organ, but when my daughter got married she wanted it. Guess her mind has changed over the years. Maybe one day I will get up enough nerve to crawl around in all of that mess in their barn.
