my new sewing machine!

there are a lot of things i don't like about my job, but i can't quit now; my boss just gave me a sewing machine! i told her all about the sewing class i took at make workshop--which i highly recommend, by the way. and, the next weekend, up in the berkshires, while exploring an old house her in-laws had just bought, she found this beauty in perfect working condition. it was made in the fifties and still had the manual and the light bulb even works. the lady was in her nineties when she died, at home. it's heavy as heck, but my boss carted it on the subway from brooklyn to work for me. that's just ridiculously nice--i would be an idiot to quit. i made a napkin as soon as i got home. and am shopping for a good a-line skirt pattern for my first project.
