With all we have been up to lately rehabbing sewing machines and such we found ourselves craigslisting and thrift shopping for older sewing machines that needed help! We have seemed to be on a roll and my honey so enjoys it... and I reap the rewards of his labor! lol
Anyway, while thrifting locally we bought this beautiful zig zag machine that has 13 decorative stitches... for less than $13.00!!! $12.78 with tax! lol For my honey to fix and then sell for seed money to start a side business and expand his new hobby. Ha!
I fell in love with her... the more research I did, the more I liked her... then he sewed on her.. it was LOVE! For both my honey (as he lovingly repaired her unoiled parts and frozen gears and figured out her broken bobbin) and also I realized THIS machine would be my Janome replacement!
He and I decided Nelly would be her name... after her brand name Nelco.

So now I just gotta clean up the Janome and take posing pics to sell her so we have money for my honey to buy machines to SELL! lol Anyone want a great deal on a Janome 8077 sewing machine? lol
Hope you have enjoyed meeting Nelly... she is still getting cleaned up... as you can see in this pic...

Have a great rest of your week!
