As we were killing time we made some shopping stops. We stopped in Lafayette Oregon at a former school house that has been turned into an antique mall. I was able to find a beautiful Fenten bell for my mother. So it was a good stop.
I also stopped in at the local Goodwill. There I found my latest acquisition of a sewing machine. I love the fact that the older work horse machines don't jump around the table and run away from you when you are sewing fast. There were two machines that I found interesting One of them came home with me.
One of them was a gold colored machine called a Golden _______something. But the wheel was dragging on it. Nice but I don't know the first thing about repair work and don't have a big budget for that.
The other one was what I am guessing is a Singer Supreme. Made in 1953 in Japan. Runs great and cleaned up wonderfully.
I really like the looks of the older machines. Hubby probably thinks I'm turning into a hoarder but I only have three machines and in my defense, I am thinking about selling one of them. Just don't need two light weight machines. I actually bought the other light weight to have when my sis comes over and we have a sewing/crafting day/weekend.
I haven't sewn a stitch on any of my projects all week. I find when I get home from work I want to sit in the peace and quiet of an almost empty house. Then I have to pick M up from my sister's place and the evening routine begins. Sadly I am starting to go to bed earlier as I get older. Just can't stay awake like I used to. Problem is I then wake up earlier than I need to. Who wants to wake up early when you have to go to work??
