Did I mention that my vintage sewing machine, which I love dearly, ended up in the shop yesterday? Threads keep getting tangled in the bobbin case; I spent an hour getting out the mess of thread, only to have it happen again when I started sewing. Off I went to the fixit man, who has to take the thing apart and won't have it for me till next week. Bah.
I have two other machines down here; one of which has problems. The second one has been adequate, but today it became inadequate. I think the feed dogs are crooked and the stitch length thing must be broken. Even for me, this is unacceptable.
Naturally, I am having a sewing machine emergency: I am frantically sewing samples for my online class -- or I should say I WAS sewing.... Faced with the prospect of disaster, I did what any sane person would do: I went onto Amazon Prime and ordered a sewing machine, which should arrive on Thursday.
Since I had already done tons of research when I was buying a machine for Miss Emma's 6th birthday, I didn't have to do it again. I just ordered the same machine I had bought for her. Thank you, peeps, for all your advice. Good enough for a six year old, good enough for her Nanny.
Emma loves the machine and has already sewn pillows for her dolls. Notice the fancy doll house; on the right, several doll-sized pillows. My favorite is the neck pillow for her bird doll.

Where does the time go??
