New Sewing Machine!!!

Husky broke Friday evening. (That's the name I've given my mom's old machine - a Husqvarna 990 SLE). She's in the sewing machine hospital as I type. However, on Saturday, I found Matey!!! Matey is a Singer Fashion Mat 237 M.A. I picked up her a yard sale for $10.00. The guy said it worked. It had the base and the lid, though one of the clasps on the lid is missing, so I'll never be able to carry her with the lid. That's okay. I'll like never be carrying Matey because she's so heavy!!!! But after fiddling with the threading and the tension she works!!!!! And, she's got a 1/4" presser foot :-).

My other machines, so they don't feel left out, are Kenny (A Kenmore Min Ultra) and Sergie (A serger ... can't think of the brand/model off hand.

I finished the skirt! I was working on the seat pockets when Husky threw her fit :-). I'm working on the SBS blocks on Matey. --- it's nice having a 1/4" foot.

Well, all for now,
