Celebrating...

Ms Nomee is celebrating...

She invited some friends around,

for a little drink.

She even has proof of her age.

I inherited this machine from my grandmother who was a very meticulous record keeper - the receipt is taped inside the back cover of the manual which came with the machine. I really like this hand written receipt which is signed by Mr Reynolds, the printed receipts of today would no longer be legible.

As I use the handy reference book often I am reminded that my faithful sewing machine is now a young lady with lots more stitches in her future.

If you'd like to join the celebrations you can leave a comment here and we will whip up something to send to a lucky someone.

Hope you're celebrating this week.
