A few weeks ago a sewing machine was in the ad,. window of my local post office . I didn't really need another sewing machine but thought I'd enquire about itanyway . The machine advertised wasn't any use to me . It was a grand quilter useful for quilting big quilts but the lady said `I have a Bernina for sale too` . My ears pricked up .It is a 240 patchwork addition . I didn't need that either but went to have a look . Tried it out , bought it .
The seller said `I have a Janome Mylock overlocker for sale as well . O.K I'll have a look at that . Bought that too . I'm sure these machines had been bought on a whim. I can say I bought as new .
This afternoon I decided to use some fleece fabric from my stash to make blankets for the twins that are booked to arrive in my family in the Autumn . A speedy overlock around the edges . I shall be stting doing blanket stitch on the edges too .
I had change from £500. I am well satisfied.
