I have begun to get attached to my new (Brother NS50) machine. I have not had a lot of time to use it, but enough to get familiar with how its runs and what it can do. I'm liking it.
Sadly when I rang the little local repair shop (sewing machine hospital) asking if he would like my Janome for parts or anything really he might find it useful for he said no, he only uses new parts. He had no suggestions of what I can do with it other than put it out in the wheely bin to go off to that magical place where things disappear when we don't want them anymore...ohh, except we all know they don't really disappear and it bothers me to think of 1. my beloveds gift all those years ago ending at a place like that and 2. I just hate waste. I hate things being unusable and non degradable. I have enough guilt thinking about all the stuff I use that ends up in landfill already.
Maybe its the pregnancy hormones but the thought of a precious gift sitting in a pile of shit for hundreds... ?thousands? of years makes me sad.
