Post Weekend

Tada!  Done.  Well, pretty close to done.  The kids and I took a side trip across town this afternoon and came home with this baby.

Yup.  A commercial straight stitch machine.  A Sundia LS2-150C.  Found it on Craigslist.  Now I can repair drops and build heavy duty stuff without praying my machine will make it.  I had to ask my brother in law to come help me take it out of the van.  I can't even lift the machine!  It's sitting in the garage 'cause I have no idea where it's gonna go.

Isn't she pretty?  The woman I bought her from threw in 30 cones of thread, an office chair, a garbage sack full of fabric and a bunch of hangers.

Needless to say, this took a chunk of time out of my cleaning time.  I got everything done though.  Emptied my scrap basket, got everything sorted and cut. 

Of course its full again, I put in all the fabric she gave me.  Most of it is quilting weight cotton, but there's some that I have no idea on and will have to do burn tests.

But look!  The table - its clean!!!

And here, my little sewing table is still missing.  It won't be back for a couple weeks.
