I Made Some Yarn & Got a "New" Sewing Machine!!

My friend Jennifer over at Desert Garden Farms sent me a wonderful surprise package with home-grown fiber & a drop spindle!! Here' s my first attempt at spinning. Now Madame Poulet has a neck warmer knitted from this handspun yarn.

I've been treasure hunting a lot lately, searching for sweaters to unravel for yarn & for other goodies. I saw this machine at a yard sale & couldn't help myself. It is beautiful & heavy & clean & the motor sounds good & the light still works. I was going to possibly re-sell it but I think I'm going to keep it. I love sewing on well-maintained, heavy old sewing machines.
