I have a dilema, friends. I picked up this little number at an estate sale yesterday and I’m pretty in love with it:
Isn’t she gorgeous? What’s the problem, you ask? Well, I already have 3, yes, THREE, vintage sewing machines. How many vintage sewing machines does a gal really need, anyway? But this one is turquoise! I don’t have a turquoise one! Wanna see what I do have?
A pink Jaguar! I do love this machine. Even though I don’t often sew with it unless my favorite one is messing up, she’s still serviced and ready to serve my sewing needs at a moment’s notice. She’s a good girl.
A Singer Genie 353. The flower power design of this one is what had me hunting down one of these machines for ever. It sews well and has a few fancy extra stitches my other machines don’t do without an attachment, which is nice.
So what do I do? Keep the pretty turquoise Home Mark (which would nicely round out my collection, I must say), or sell it and make a tidy profit since I got it for a steal? Not to mention make some other gal giddy with excitement when she finds it in the shop? Oh it’s a rough life for your old pal Betty, isn’t it?
