or what I do when I am not working or farming …

More on those auction finds

yarn container
Here is the container that holds all the yarn. At one point it had a fabric cover and I imagine it was stuffed like a big pin cushion! Some day I might feel capable enough to remove the small staples that hold the band that keeps the lid together, and replace the fabric, but for now, it will remain un-upholstered.

Cone of laceweight
One yarn I didn’t share last time is this cone of laceweight yarn. I have no idea how much is there! I think it is merino, it has a slight halo and just reminds me of merino laceweight I have seen. What are your thoughts?

Here is the case that contains the sewing machine. It currently rests in a tight spot where good pictures are hard to take.

Lots of cubbies to store tools etc.

Here is the machine, a warhorse for sure. It is a 117.97, the label is Kenmore though there is a Singer equivalent. Both were manufactured by White in 1952.

It came with all of its documentation and attachments, but not the most important ones – the foot pedal and power cord! I have some research to do!
