Eirinn's Journey part 3

So EIRINN has a few fixable issues her flyer arm has been broken, the orifice and flyer holdings are missing, the treadle thong is crusty and snapped, a dowel that holds the wheel has been snapped in situ. And she needs a drive band put on her.

My plan is to sand her down completely especially as I have a good knowledge that she isn't a old girl probably only about 30 years give or take. Then I am going yo paint and decorate her in a arts and craft style. And as I go on thus refurbishment journey I will mend her as much as I can untill I can locate the company so I can order a new flyer and extra bobbins.

So base colour thinking a pale sea green or cream undecided untill I have her striped down to her parts....
