Say Hello to Ellykin Dwobfoddle

Ellykin Dwobfoddle - Gnome2

Well, I finished it, finally. His name is Ellykin Dwobfoddle.

This is the gnome from designer Alan Dart that I started months ago. I had him knitted for a while, but hadn't sewn him up. I made sure I had him done by Christmas though. Isn't he cute? His nose is a little pink so we call him the alcoholic gnome.

Do you know this Machine?

Does anyone know what kind of machine this is?

We are putting new flooring in the living room and kitchen and we were moving it and I opened it up and discovered that it still works!

I got this from my mom when she passed away. It was my Grandmother's machine. I have had this for a couple of years but it just sat in the corner. I just don't know what kind of machine it is. I know it needs cleaning and a little oil, but it would be nice to know what it is.

I asked for a sewing machine for Christmas this year, but if this works I don't need all the bells and whistles of the newer machines. All I want is a basic machine.

Here are some more pictures:

Yeah, I know... I have been away for a while. We started a new painting business and had a big job for a local celebrity and that took all of my time. I hope to be around for a while now that things have settled a little. I say "a little" because we are now upgrading the flooring in our house and doing it ourselves. Its taking forever, but I can't wait until its done. Pictures to come.
