Yesterday, on Thanksgiving, Louie refabricated an old letter opener we bought while thrifting, into a Kenmore (badge) letter opener, while I sewed.
I found the badge on ebay, bought it, and Louie worked his magic. The badge is off an old Kenmore sewing machine that someone removed while scrapping the machine.

He removed the medallion from the old letter opener, then he made a round black piece to set the medallion in, and glued it up. I like it!
He also fabricated a metal piece to slide over the reverse lever on this sewing machine. We brought this machine home with us, from our Volunteer day in Madison last week. The lever was broken off just about ‘flush’ with the front of the machine. Now it can go back and be passed along.
I’m not getting much done today. What are you doing?
