Well, I bought another machine on an auction, and luckily I got it for $27 plus shipping. So, now I have to stop, because my DH will probably not like that I bought this one....oh well, too late!! Besides, I don't get my hair or nails done, and I don't go shoe or purse shopping every week or even every month. I don't feel guilty!!! :-) Isn't she cute? It's a 3/4 machine.
