    New machine and one I didn't know we had

    It turned into a very eventful day today.

    First, DH and I were going to drop some things to charity. Included in the pile of things was an old sewing machine, which was DH's grandmothers, which I had thought was not the greatest. Imagine my surprise when we lifted the lid and found a Singer Spartan from the late 50's-early 60's! Needs a new belt, and I think I'm gonna sell it.

    Second, DH and I went to our local Habitat for Humanity Re-Store. They sell donated items as well as extra items not used on the build sites. I walked in the door and there was this Bernina Nova 900 with cabinet! Unfortunately, all but one of the feet were missing (but I have feet that will fit it from my 1120). Only cost me $100. Still in shock.

    You gotta love those Re-Stores! I was at our local one today, too. I saw a machine in a cabinet, but I didn't even go near it; was afraid I would decide I needed it!
