Mystery art

Did I tell you that my sewing machine died again? I won't be going back to that repair shop ever ever again.
I've been working on things that I can't post yet..... surprises. Here is a sneak peak of my assembly line....Oh, what will it be????
I had to finish whatever it was on my old Singer. We'll just call it "old reliable" It's a Singer 237 made in the mid 1960s. I hope it never needs servicing because it's built into a cabinet... I normally just have my bernina on top of the cabinet. My bernina 801 has gone to visit the Bernina Head Office for maintenance. I included the spring, washers, nut and bolt that I found on the inner bottom of the machine. Cross your fingers that it doesn't cost a fortune.

Aaarrrrghhhh! You found nuts and bolts on the bottom of your machine case?!?!! I am aggravated for you. Your project looks very intriguing and I look forward to seeing it completed.

This looks interesting..... when do we get to see the finished product?????
I hope you get your bernina back soon (although the trusty old Singer sounds like its doing a great job for you). Sincerely hope they dont charge you after finding pieces of the machine in the base!!!

Take care and have a lovely weekend.

I'm getting a new machine. I have to just accept that I got a lemon. Any suggestions?
