The practical reinventor has finally gotten her sewing machine sprinkler. It's a late 1950s Auto So that had its cords removed by someone with no respect.
It came to Marmalade Cottage via an op shop, discovered under a shelf, covered in dust, five minutes to closing. It was $5. It was quite a sophisticated machine in its day, with a variety of decorative stitch cams.
The foot went to another vintage machine, and the bakelite plugs have been put into a drawer of interesting bits and pieces, perhaps to have another life too.
It's the perfect combination of two of the practical reinventor's favourite things: sewing and gardening.
