Last summer, a tree fell on my house and dropped down this icky black stuff out of the ceilings. Most everything I own had to be replaced or cleaned.
My sewing machine came out of storage in fairly good shape compared to a lot of other things. But, 2 summers in storage was not a good friend to my brother XL. I cleaned it and oiled it and the needle will not budge. So I've decided to replace it. Which is ok, because the machine had "sentimental value" that sucked. As in, maybe now that it is out of my life, my life will improve.
So we are going out in 2 1/2 hours and getting me a new machine for my birthday. I'm super excited, because now I have a good excuse to make stuff to post just for you!! :)
