I bought a new used sewing machine a Singer 99. It is a 3/4 size machine. I thought it might be a featherweight but it is not. I really love it. It sews great, although it is a guilty pleasure because I could have used some new clothes. I did get some new clothes: 3 pairs of pants. One pair of corduroys, one rayon/nylon and one pair of blue jeans with silver snaps at the hems.
I also bought a quilting hoop which I hopefully will get up to speed tomorrow for my quilt as you go. I have been using the new machine to work on the block. It is doing a smashing good job.
