My new baby (sewing machine)!!!!
I just brought her home today!!! I've been wanting a new machine for a long time now. The stars have finally aligned for me! I found this used beauty on Craig's List (I love that site!) for a fraction of the price of a new one. I have been looking at new machines, and used ones on eBay, but the ole' budget has kept me from getting what I really wanted (new), and I just was too nervous to buy on eBay without being able to try it out in person. I almost did. But after narrowing down my choices, saving all of my Christmas, birthday, and tax refund money, when I saw this pop up on a Craig's list an hour away, I took her for a test drive then waited, hoping no one else would buy her. I'm still a little nervous about buying used, but spent a while tester her out, and have been sewing with her for a few hours today, and still think I got lucky! The owner threw in a custom acrylic quilting platform, an open toe darning foot, and a luggage tote in to boot! The only thing I'm missing is a 1/4 inch foot with a guide. I hope to get one soon! I can't tell you how excited I am!!! I feel like it's Christmas in March!!
Speaking of wonders, it's "rainbow season" here! I saw this rainbow last night! Enjoy!!
