The sewing machine had been having problems a year after I bought him, but I had always got it fixed at a local place. My parents went to Asuncion a few weeks ago, and my Mom (you're the greatest!) took my "brother" to a shop there and explained what the problems were. We are going to Asuncion next week for Brianna's check up and I hope that we'll be able to pick up the machine on the same trip.
I was cleaning my closet today and found some books and magazines that I had completly forgotton about. My Mom had found an old sewing magazine at a yard sale and wanted to throw it away later, but I saved it and love looking through it. I'm scanning some pages of it for you to enjoy as well. It's Simplicity's Spring 1967 issue. So it's 4 years older than I am:)
I'm still trying to decide what will be the first thing I'll sew when I have him back... I have two new Burda magazines to pick from.
Next week Monday we'll be going to Asuncion until Wednesday. Brianna has a check-up (electroensefalograma) on Tuesday morning and we'll visit the Expo and eat real fast food:) (Always a highlight when you live so far from McDonald's)
Have a good Tuesday! See ya!
