Quite some time ago, Hubby and I went to an auction. It was long before we were interested in the new house so I am really unsure of why he bought this bucket of what I thought was junk. Well as we were going through the new house, I noticed that there are lots of push button light switches. Do you remember those??
My parents had them in their house and I have always loved them. I was talking to Hubby and said that I really wanted to keep them. Well I got the whole electrical speech…(Hubby’s a volunteer fireman and is always telling me that electric work needs to updated) I sighed and thought it was a done deal discussion.
Then he asked the electrician about it and he said, some of what we have can be salvaged and they do in fact make reproductions. Ya-Hoo!! Anyone know how to clean the ones I have or does anyone have some lying in a bucket at your house that you want to get rid of?? Next time we are at the house, I am going to try to count up how many I’ll need.
(Back to the story)…Then Hubby said wait…in that box of stuff I got at that auction are some face plates! Well last night we got the bucket out and started sorting through it. There were three plates and one usable switch along with…SEWING MACHINE PARTS!!
There are lots and lots of sewing machine parts. Shuttles, face places, and all sorts of plates that slide over the bobbin….oh and feet and feet and feet. All of the stuff on the right in the photo are sewing machine pieces. I have no idea what we are going to do with them all.
In the mix I found the seam guide thing that Bonnie Hunter uses. I put it on my machine and sewed a few pieces testing it out.
My initial reaction, I’m not sure if I like it…I have to pull the pins out earlier than I otherwise would but I am going keep trying it for a week and then I’ll make a decision on whether I’ll keep it on.
Well that’s how things go around here…from a junk goodie auction bucket to push button light switches and then back to sewing. It always comes back to sewing.
