A couple of days ago I found a good looking older sewing machine. Well older than me anyway. It's a White brand 60 something machine complete with cabinet and many fun accessories.
While I was out spending the day in the decent weather I stumbled across a White model 77 sewing machine. The tag said it was a 1942. I have yet to be able to check it out to be sure but what I did know in looking at it for a good 15 minutes is it was in great cosmetic shape. Didn't see any rust on the machine and the cabinet, or at least what I could see thru the coffee cups and the huge ceramic chicken sitting on it, was also in good shape and they only wanted $100 for it. The wheel moved smoothly and it had a bobbin in it but I don't know if it worked. I'm wondering if it would be worth the cash to find out. Here is a picture of it.
I was showing these to her from the hospital. My niece was running in p.e class and hurt herself and passed out twice. She got an ambulance ride and after about an hour and a half, which is a record for our hospital, she limped out on crutches with a sprained hip. Ouch! But she has a high pain tolerance and went to school today and then is spending the night with friends.
It looks like I might make it into two of Bonnie's classes here in Oregon in September. Yay!! I am mailing off my registration tomorrow for her Jamestown Landing and Cathedral Stars workshops. I can't wait. I have already started picking my fabrics for Cathedral Stars and am hoping that my neutral triangle left overs from Roll Roll Cotton Boll will be big enough for using in Jamestown Landing.
Well I am tired as my work day started around 5:30am when I got called into work to help with an emergency and I have to work tomorrow. Night night.
