Billy, Sorry to hear about your storm damage. We have had a lot of rain and high wind. Not too much damage. The rain washed out our driveway. Going to get more rain for the next 5 days. People here think they are begining to grow webs between there toes.

Billy, is that the part of the house you were going to remodel? Perhaps the insurance company can now "help" with that remodel fund. Glad no one hurt and not more damage was done.

Thanks for the info Nancy. I printed it out so I remember in the future. Hopefully I do this right. Since my camera (I think it is really me) takes crummy pics I am using the ones I saw originally. Made a deal with a girl on CL last week for this first one. Picked it up Monday on my way home from work.

cabinet is pretty perfect

And then I won a second auction on shopgoodwill.com last week and Tuesday this one came home with me. I decided after I got this one and it was perfect that I was done!

However I looked at Craigslist today and in the Free catagory was listed 2 singers. One is a Spartan 192k and the other one is described as in a small cute table. Yeah those are being picked up on my way home from work tonight. I will not look at any more ads. (At least til Monday.) I am running out of room.

Yep, the Wilcox and Gibbs makes a beautiful chain stitch. That is the machine used to make the Civil war uniforms because the stitch is so purrrrty!

Thank you Kathie, I can't believe how quiet little Willy 2 sounds either! I think everyone at Girl's Night Out was in awe of this little machine!

Trish I may use it occasionally, but first I have to find a stash of needles -- they are pricey and hard to find!

Ok, I NEVER find free machines! I love the black crinkle embossed White, love the Morse and it's pretty blue color, what is the brown crinkle? I can't believe you are getting a Spartan free? Please post pictures of the two newest machines when you can!
