Default Oryx, you rock!

This was an awesome surprise in the mailbox today, especially since I was just coming from my cousin's funeral. Thank you so much, Oryx.

I'd like to point out that SOMEONE in the Oryx and Trout household is responsible for completely refurbishing the antique sewing machine without which she never would have been able to sew that...




ok. I replaced a $5.00 part, oiled it up, fiddled with a few parts and redid some electrical bits in the cabinet, then "modified" a needle so that it fit properly. It wasn't exactly a "total refurbishing". I haven't refinished the cabinet yet. Oryx sorted out a problem with the bobbin case and fixed that with a bit of electrical tape. She actually did all the work. You're right. She rocks!

Wait. I helped pick the fabric. Except, she vetoed the one that was covered with trout and fishing flies. Who wouldn't love anything made out of fabric covered with fish and flies? Not me!

At any rate, we got a really cool sewing machine and its cabinet for under $30.00, including the cost of parts, so go us! I know she'll be glad you like the needle holder.

It's awesome, but I would have chosen this fabric:

I got a kick out of this thread title considering what Oryx studied in school

Love the fabric. It reminds me of a little purse my daughter made for me.
