O. K. There's something you need to know first. I never, never go to yard sales. I have so much stuff, I've been trying to de-clutter my own life. In one of life's bittersweet moments as we age, my friend is needing to downsize, and when she called for help with her yard sale, I went.
The only way I can justify the reward I got, is to say we are recycling and reusing, and perhaps I am storing some items for her in my house. These are the treasures I am loving. A wonderful desk and craft cabinet, in beautiful condition, for which I paid $80. Closed, it measures 45" tall, 32" wide, and 21" deep, but unfolded it is 64" wide and 30" deep. I can craft until the cows come home with all the storage.
Be still, my heart.
This beauty made my soul sing. It comes complete with all the attachments, instructions, feet, bobbins and needles, and works just fine, according to Ellen, who sewed on it as recently as two weeks ago. She showed me the lovely quilts her mother made on it, and told me stories of putting the needle through her fingernail, more than once.
Thanks, Dear Friend, for my happy heart, and may you find the perfect abode in which to express your Essential Elegance.
Love to all.
