project gratitude: 1013

October 13- Today I am grateful for my surprise find at an op-shop today. An Elna sewing machine. They are small and compact and the perfect travel machine. Mine is circa 1980, and in the past few years these machines have become somewhat collectors items and quite valued. My wonderful mother in law gave it the once over this afternoon and after some love from her it is looking and sounding great. I knew it was a steal for $25 (half price day- it was originally only $50) but when we got home I discovered it's worth $300+! This sewing hobby of mine is zooming along! I even started on something today for Tilly and her friend Leah and decorated a new top for Tilly. Too cute.
