Empty Handed

After all the giddy excitement of the Auction last night, I came home empty handed.  I had money from my boss from Christmas & my birthday that I have saved back, but I couldn't bring myself to pay $475 for the machine.  Now, I know it was worth it but I have a budget and I am pretty proud I didn't go for it and blow my budget.
I saw the machine on HSN for $2,999.  Ebay has it for $2,499 but I figured that no one knew what kind of machine it was and I could go up to about $250.  Maybe things work out for the best.  There is alot of what-if on a used machine.  So maybe next time......
I am off work today and tomorrow and I have a million things to do. Hopefully I can make a dent in my to-do list and even get a little sewing in too!
Until next time....



  1. Bonnie did anyone buy the machine or was it still there when you left? Any possibility you could get it next auction on your budgeted amount? I've never been to an auction so I don't know exactly how they work.

    1. Anita, Thank you for being my first Blog Comment!!! The machine did sell for $450, I would have had to bid at least $475 for the next bid and I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I am always hopeful for a good deal but I guess now was not the time for me. I waited 4 years for a serger and found one at a thrift shop, had a coupon, went on a sale day and got it for $7.99, now that is a good deal!
