+Singer 66+ Edna

~Here she is....~ My 1926, Singer 66.

I am so proud of myself it's not even funny. I did a lot of work that I didn't think I was capable of. Like set the timing, taking apart the bobbin winder, adding a handcrank. 

As you can see from the photo, I've still kept the yellow paint on in some places. (Remember?) It was pretty stuck on there, and I'm not ready to strip it down. I've oiled the wood constantly, and the veneer glue smell is slowly going away.

All clean, and working like a charm!  The decal pattern is filigree, the handcrank and spoke were purchased from here. I use it for piecing scraps together for a "someday" quilt. It's a pretty fun machine.
