A Few Years Back...
A few years back, 36 to be exact, we welcomed a 9 lb. baby boy into the world. We were really young, but we figured it all out as we went along. Not having a second car, and a husband who worked all day and took college classes at night, there was always more time than money. Not long before the baby arrived my brother-in-law surprised me with a sewing machine that he had bought for $7.00 at an auction. Yes, that is right....$7.00! Never mind that it was about 30 years old at the time or that it only did a straight stitch, I could now make curtains and other things for the house and our new baby. When I was desperate for a zigzag stitch or buttonholes, we visited grandma's sewing machine.
Just a reminder that we don't have to start with the biggest or best.
