Today, in addition to my new link party, I’m showing you a before and after of one of my sewing machine remakes.
This is the picture from Craig’s List. I bought this sewing machine for $20.00.

While talking to Jamie I mentioned I was trying to think of a name for a regular Friday link party. She came up with the perfect title. It doesn’t really go well with Friday but that’s okay. Some of you may be familiar with the phrase: Catch-as-catch-can. If you were a member of my family you would say it very fast, more like this ketchasketchcan, as though it were all one word instead of a phrase. While I was growing up that’s basically how we referred to leftovers, or whenever we had to “fend” for ourselves. The dreaded question “what’s for supper” was often answered “ketchasketchcan”. I liked it when I heard that, because I had the freedom to find something to eat, my choice.
Answers.com says this: Using or making do with whatever means are available; irregular, made a catch-as-catch-can living doing odd jobs
That pretty much sums up the way I DIY, and the way I’m currently living my life.
