Mystery solved!

For years I wondered what happened to my mother's sewing machine. Will get a chance to see it again this week since I'm flying to Indiana tomorrow morning. Seems my cousin's wife has it.

It's in a drop in and has a knee pedal. Getting really anxious. Praying she lets me have it. Needs some repair but maybe only some cleaning. Either way, I'm hoping she lets me have it.*

It is about 14 years but just wanted to finish this one. Will just have to hand rinse then toss into dryer. Guess I should be grateful DH says we will get new tomorrow. He hates Laundromats worse than I do. If anyone were to ask me which appliance I would do without, the answer would not be my washer and dryer. I can cook anything on the BBQ pit ...
