The only bummer -- I got it home before I realized the needle had been bumped to the right of dead center. The mechanic quickly adjusted that, and I returned home with my prize possession. My sewing machine is humming along, better than it's sounded in years.
I immediately put it to work (even before I returned for the adjustment). Sewed up some fleece for the guinea pigs' cage, repaired one of my rice bags, and started sewing the new quilt! I've done quite a bit of it with just a few evening's work. I'll need to get background material and batting soon; I'll be done sewing the little squares by next weekend.
