The spelling is the original in the ad...I couldn't resist sharing this opportunity....

I kept looking IN the fishtank for the sewing machine for a moment. Nope, just normal fish stuff.

Where did you find this, Muffet?

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Vermont Craigslist....HAhahahaa....no, they have both for sale, but it sure sounds like a combo doesn't it? HAHahhaa...I got a kick out of it.

The only concern I have is whether the fish dry themselves off first, before using the sewing machine. Firstly, of course, one prefers fried fish in a fry pan, not on the sewing machine. And secondly, constant water on the machine surface would cause problems to the machine finish.

Well...one further concern; assuming the fish do dry themselves off before sewing, are they male-type fishies who just drop their towels in wet heaps? I'm pretty fussy about my home being neat and clean, and not having piles of wet towels dropped about.

Otherwise, sounds like a good deal.

Oh. At first, when I saw the top of the picture, I thought if I scrolled down I'd see a Touch and Sew, or a Featherweight submerged. Imagine that, would you? But you saved me...

The thought of any machine submerged makes me clutch my imaginary pearls!

I hear you on those towel heaps....GAD. Yes, the ad was so funny - a couple of my co-workers and I found it really ramped up our Friday fun!I am not buying that combo. Although sewing fish would be a nice carnival act should I decide to abscond with the circus. OH - and the other meaning of sewing fishies - how cruel....
