a friend i’ve been waiting for

my new sewing machine (if one can call it a machine, because it talks and sings)

It’s 110 years old and makes perfect plain and straight stitch, nothing else, no bustle. I bought it (without knowing if it’s functional) from an old lady in Stockholm, she never used it, but thought her grandmother sew on it. I figured out all the details  (like that it was manufactured in Scotland and how to adjust and oil it etc.) on the net by the model nr).

I am not really a sewing person, but then the process of using this little Singer is not really a sewing, it’s a much more complex experience, hmm.
