Susan still has her Grandmother's sewing machine from 1926* and still uses it. Here's what you will see in the bottom right drawer.

*She also still has the original receipt from Sears!

    You'll see that in my bottom drawer as well. The little tomato hanging from the side of the pin cushion does have a function. Do you know what it is? Great entry Don. Is her machine a pedal?
