A Recent Find

I love thrifting.
And accidentally coming across an estate sale.
And finding things like this in the basement.


Antique.  Pristine condition.


 $25!


Why do I need two sewing machines?  In case a friend wants to come over and craft together.  And Mayumi is already into it.  In no time she'll be whipping up little projects as we work side by side.

Hold on, let me wipe away a happy tear...

How did I not know you sewed when we were working at the same place? It's a beautiful machine! I have a gorgeous 1970s Kenmore that I got from freecycle!
