Sometimes it is just so strange how things work.
After my mother passed, my sister and I went to her house and kept a few token things to remind us of her.
Well, now three years later....I get a call from the son that had liquidated the assets. He had kept the sewing machine and cabinet for me. WHAT?? Did he know I sewed? Did my mom tell him I did at some point? I did see the machine and cabinet while there but had no way to get it to my house 12 hours away.
Of course I JUMPED at the chance to get the machine and the next day drove up to get it. I only had to drive 2 hours north as he was down for his work and brought the machine. YAY!!
So here she is - not an expense machine. I like that it is a Brother and light weight.
And the cabinet
The cabinet has a nice mechanism that raises and lowers the machine easily.
And thread holders!
Right now it is in my garage - until this weekend when I make room for it.
Strangely, this came right around my birthday - so I consider it a birthday gift from my mom.
In my "About Me" profile (to the right of this main text), I talk about my mother and wanting to sew on her machine. I feel very blessed to receive this gift. I like the way God planned this out. Do you think they were conspiring together?
Now let's go sew!
