I haven’t done much thrifting lately. Mainly because it was summer and I didn’t go many places alone. (Thrifting with 4 kids just doesn’t sound that fun. Either they want weird stuff or they want to go home.) Also I spent the summer trying to eliminate clutter, rather than accumulate more. (You should see the piles of stuff I got rid of. Felt SO good.) But one day I was out running and I ran past a yard sale and spotted this beauty.
My daughter took a sewing class this summer and I’ve been thinking about getting another machine for my girls to use. (Mainly so I don’t have to share mine.) I thought about just getting an el-cheapo model, but I’ve been dragging my feet for a long time trying to decide what to do. Then I saw this sucker. It was only $20, and it looks like a nice model (heavy, metal parts, etc.) and seems to run fine. I’m going to take it in for a professional tune-up just to make sure. Does anyone out there have this machine?
Also, I’ve been working on my navy and green quilt. I even did the quilting by myself, on my own machine. Simple cross-hatching, but you don’t know how proud I am of this achievement. I am usually terrified of ruining my quilts by quilting them myself. I’ve had a few people ask about this one – yes, I am going to do a pattern. I’m hoping to have it ready soon – or at least when I share the finished quilt.
And finally, I’m still stitching away at soccer games.
