I was excited for this afternoon's mail as I was expecting packages! I got home to find a huge box marked "perishable" all over every side. "What's this?" I asked Dash. He had no clue. Fun mail isn't supposed to look like that and I was deeply puzzled. Oh, wait...that's my prescription from the specialty pharmacy! Not fun mail at all! My little bottle of pills came in a giant styrofoam box with little chilled coolers inside another giant box.
Then the actual mail came and I was a little frightened:
Eeek! Obviously well smashed on top of being two days late. Hmmm. This package went from Arizona to Virginia where it wandered around before being sent back to Oklahoma for delivery.
Whew, the insides were undamaged! I found this box of 503 accessories on eBay and snapped it up as I have no feet except a zigzag and I was hoping it had some of the cams I needed to complete my set. It did have two I needed but it also had two of the "0" (zero) cams that are rather sought after. That makes 3 zero cams I have! I will have to give these things a good cleaning ala Andy Tube's method as they are kinda stinky. The box will be put in storage along with the manual...pee-yew...I hate that musty odor!
Another little package, this one undamaged, was a bobbin tension meter so I can check things out on my machines. You can find this creature on The Singer Featherweight Shop's site click here.
I've also gathered even more supplies for machine restoration. Odd photo angle as my paint brushes package would not stop shining!
This is a picture for Andy who was telling me about the rare eyelet cam for my buttonholer and as luck would have it one was mixed in with the accessories that came with my 301. It even has the original box! Quite a find and I still grin every time I think of it!
No photos of the Dresden plate, but all my folded corners are on! Progress, slow but there.
