The machine that lies beneath....

This is the sewing machine which lives in the desk I sew at. It's built into the desk and was really hidden! It kind of pulls up and out.

I think it's rather beautiful. It's an old Naumann. Anyone know how old it is? It's pretty rusty and the foot pedal and cords are missing so I unfortunately can't use it.

I'm so curious about it's previous owner - it wasn't my landlord's machine. I found little scraps of fabric from things she made (I am just assuming she was a she) inside the hole and tons of pins. I wonder what she made... I have so many questions!

She had a magnetic thermometer on her machine! It kinda makes me wish I had bought a metal machine....
