Electro Grand Sewing Machine and Birthday Party

 Saturday evening we had Hunter a birthday party.  We had planned on having a weenie roast but it started raining about an hour or so beforehand so we moved it inside.  It all worked out well in the end and he had a wonderful time.  His birthday is actually Monday and he will be 12 yrs old.  It is hard to believe that he is that old.  He loves Minecraft the video game so we went with that theme.  He loved it!  :)
He had 3 of this friends that spent the night and they were up ALL night!  :)  We had lots of family and friends that were here so he enjoyed that also.  

Sadly when we got up this morning for Church, I was in some pain with my lower back and hips due to an injury from several years ago and I guess that I over did it getting ready for his party.  I did not go to Church this morning and I missed not going.  Richard went without me.  When he came home he walked through the door carrying this....
He just sorta rolled his eyes and said, "Ruby from Church sent you a sewing machine"  LOL!  I haven't started cleaning her up or oiling yet but here she is.  It is an Electro Grand made in Japan.  The pedal is broken but I wired up one that goes to another machine just to check and see how this one would work and she sews fine.  Now I need to clean her up.

I love it. It reminds me of a vintage car with the dials and colors. Enjoy!

Sounds like you really gave Hunter a great birthday--too bad you are paying the price now. But that is what Mom's do, isn't it?
I can just imagine the eye roll you got as Richard carried in the machine. We have an elderly friend who wanted to give me her old Japanese made machine in a cabinet. It is in wonderful shape, but I really don't have room for another cabinet. I suggested we just take it and I could find another home for it, but DH didn't buy into that. : )
I've been sewing on that sweet featherweight this week. Absolutely love it!!
