Maybe a little addicted?

Is there such a thing as “a little addicted?” Either I am or I’m not. I choose not and instead choose to stop buying any more old sewing machines. Even sold and gave away a couple since the last post, way back in Jan.

Here’s the beauties I added after I moved the others out to make room for them –

DebHenderson99KJan2015aThis one is a hand crank that I bartered the last of our White Midget Heritage Turkeys for. I got her to take into K  class for their quiltmaking class.

Lotus2015

This one John set in the treadle cabinet for me, removing the not-yet-fixed Singer 99. This one was ready to go and I really like the Lotus decals.

It seems like people either love or hate the Singer Touch and Sew but I happen to be one that loves them. This is the 755 Model, just one model down from my original machine John bought me 40 years ago. Still going strong! This one came with that gorgeous cabinet.

And speaking of gorgeous …… Edgar is still going strong, but this was a resting point!

I can’t promise it won’t be as long til I blog again but who knows?

About Debbie

I'm a 53 yo homesteader/homemaker who is obsessively in love with my God, my husband and my life. I don't know anything about blogging and resisted it for years now. I am good at rambling, which is probably the old fashioned way to say blogging anyway so I'll struggle on and see where this goes. My husband, John, and I live on a 55 acre homestead in NE Texas where we raise Dwarf Nigerian Milk Goats, laying hens, guinea, cats and 3 dogs. We try to live as self-sufficiently as possible, raising organic veggies and meat chickens and using our goats milk for drinking, cooking, cheese/butter making and soap making. John works off the homestead but does a lot on the weekends. We basically live the way our grandparents or great grandparents lived. We believe living debt-free like our grandparents did is the biggest step in being self-sufficient or shall I say, God-sufficient. Life here is always an adventure and seldom boring .... to us anyway! If you have time, come watch the grass grow with me on the porch swing. Debbie
