101

Thank you so very much to all that have left comments on my 100th post giveaway ... only days to go now... 'ya gotta be in it to win it', as they say ...
Got a lovely surprise the other day when I got home from a very long day shopping with my elderly Mum ...
my flat-top sewing table arrived & I'm thrilled to bits with it - it looks good - it feels great - it fits well & best of all it works ... I know, I'm sooo easily thrilled!!! but it has come from ID. USA. I had asked my local Janome dealer if I could buy a flat-top table for my machine & with a little scoff she says ''no' not with the age of your machine' ... gosh she didn't have to rub it in, I know my sewing machine is old but she has been very faithful, sewn many clothes for me & the kids, plus curtains, etc, she still sews like a dream [she does like to be serviced regularly]& she is the last of the models they put out before they went fully computerised. She's nearly 30years old & from what I hear around the traps you don't get that age out of the newer models so I'm hanging onto to her for as long as I can... like they say 'if it ain't broke why fix it' ...
I'm am also very thrilled with the service as I had it in about three weeks - I know I couldn't be buying something from O/S at a worse finical time with the money exchange at pressie but that's OK as I couldn't get one here plus the workmanship on it is great ... I got it from Nancy's Notions - don't ask how I found them cause I really don't know but I'll hazard a guess at finding it while I was blog surfing - the weather's great for surfing at pressie ... ha ha. I did spend some time on their site as there is a lot of very useful info there besides things to buy ...

I guess she's lasted so long because you use her regularly, they say to use well and keep warm - just like us folks.
