Remember the lavender Kenmore?
The bobbin case came in the middle of the drama of my week, and there it sat for almost 36 hours before I had the wherewithal to even look at it.
Fortunately, I had one whole bobbin in my collection that fit the machine and it turns out, she sews just fine with all her pieces back together!
Lost & Found
My next simple piecing project is going to be the true test for this old gal. I can’t wait to really put her through her paces!

I freaking love old sewing machines.
I have three vintage Singers, and have had as many as five at one time.
What? I gave two of them away…and they have all been unbelievable bargains I found at thrift shops.
I saw this lavender Kenmore beauty at Goodwill today, and boy did I want to buy it.
I really, really did.
It was missing it’s foot & foot screw as well as the bobbin casing, so I didn’t buy it. I promised myself no more machines unless they came with all their parts. That followed buying a machine with no power cord and no foot control…
For $20, though…SO tempting.
So tempting, in fact, I’m contemplating checking in again tomorrow, just to see if it’s still there.
Seriously, folks, a lavender sewing machine! It was even cooler in person…
What do you think? Should I break my promise to myself and “adopt” this little beauty?
