antique sewing machine


I have the best husband. Cuz you can't imagine the things I have made him bring back from the farm over the years. He would leave on a midwest concert tour and I would beg him to bring back a piece of my past. And he would.
One such trip was my Grandma Steinke's Montgomery Wards sewing machine. You see, Randy grew up in the Air Force and moved all the time. So trust me when I say, he can pack a vehicle like nobody's business. So it did not surprise me in the least that he found a way to fit this sewing machine in his little Honda Civic Fastback. But lest you think that was all he had on board... well, think again. He also packed a rather large wooden plant stand w/spindle legs, an old farm milk can, his 12 string guitar, boxes of CDs and 2 weeks worth of clothes. We're talking a two-door hatchback! I know, he loves me that much!
