The poor old girl was found yesterday while digging for treasure with my friend Cammy at my local antique store. She was just sitting there, all alone with her case, waiting for someone like me to come along and take her home. Luckily, her former owner came walking in as we were looking her over, so I could ask her if she worked properly. We plugged her in, and she ran so smooth and so quiet. Everything else looked as though it was in good working order. All she needed was a little pampering and a good cleaning.
I couldn't get her out of my head as Cammy and I continued our hunt. I thought of her for the rest of the afternoon, just waiting there, longing for a home to continue to create beautiful things, to feel the fabric, the lace, the ribbons!
I had to meet my kids at the bus--- I had to do a little research on the computer to see if I could get a manual and after a little bit of thought--- we hopped in the car and ran in the store, just in time before they closed!
In a matter of minutes, Miss Bessy Pearl was all mine!
She looks right at home in my studio (her new home). Welcome home Miss Bessy Pearl!
We will live happily ever after.....
