Saturday sewing

Hello. Got machine cleaned by a guy that comes through a local Hancock's earlier this week, stacked my thread rack that I picked up from a pre-estate scale last week, and started this long awaited pattern today. (actually finished). Will post results soon. :-)

The score on a pre estate sale

Greetings fellow sewing buddies! Got wind of an estate sale. Contacted the person overseeing it and she allowed me to come this weekend. Here's what I got:

The last pic is a thread rack holder. I need one because my thread spools are in a clear plastic container.
Three vintage patterns. I can do this. Even though the one to the left is a Vogue, no zippers or buttons so I think it would be a good try for me.

Gotta new one!

On Tuesday, (7/1), I popped in Hancock's after work JUST to get a schedule for when the sewing repair guys schedule for the remainder of the year (called before going). Of course, they're having all these sales.
 :-). I eyed a Brother LS-590.

Checked several reviews online--all of which were positive. It was on sale for $89.99. Went back Wednesday, (7/2), and got it...but it gets better! Got an additional 10% off.

I'll be playing with it this weekend. Taking it over to Mom's later today so we can open it together.

This is the first machine I've actually purchased. My current one (an old Kenmore) was given to me by Mom about 6 years ago. It's over 35 years young, sturdy (the heavy duty kind) and still works!

Anyway, he's my score:
