Here she is! My new Brother 1034d. I know how I'm going to spend the remainder of my weekend....
Any advice welcome!
On a less expensive note, here are this weekend's thrift finds. Two sheets for muslins, a groovy (and possibly awful) 70s pattern, bemberg rayon in gray, tracing paper, and a couple of yards of blue fabric that I'm a little on the fence about. All for 10 bucks!
In other news that is only exciting to me: summer holiday plans are solidified!

Heaven willing and the creek don't rise (or fall), I'll be spending a week on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, alternating between lounging on a raft with a beer in my hand and trying not to die in the rapids. A friend of a relative of a friend somehow scored a much coveted (in the boating community) permit and I was lucky enough to get invited along. This is a once in a lifetime trip (though with any luck, I'll be able to repeat the feat). Preparing gear sewing plans as we speak!
