I’ve got exciting news. Ok, only a few of you who’ve been here since this blog was born will appreciate this, but it’s a big day around here. I’ve got curtains. In the living room. I’m so proud of how patient I’ve been. And now they’re hanging. I’ll post pics in a day or two, but for now, I’m a little tired. Because, contrary to my original plan, I actually sewed them myself. All 16 yards. It felt like miles.My sewing machine & I spent a lot of quality time together over the past several days. And it made me think of everything we’ve been thru together over the past 15 years. My machine was there for me even thru my days of pastel florals & hunter green and burgundy stripes. And that’s only the beginning. I couldn’t begin to calculate the number of yards we’ve sewn together. My Singer is one of my closest friends. That either makes me really pathetic or just really thankful to have a dependable machine. Either way, I say all this to say that you don’t have to have a really fancy expensive machine to make amazing things. Fifteen years ago this Christmas, my husband bought me a very basic Singer with just a few types of stitches & I have decorated & re-decorated every house we’ve lived in & even some of my friends’ houses. And I still love it.He’s offered over and over to buy me a new state-of-the-art machine. But I’m not ready. I’ve been thru a lot with my little Singer. And we still have some great times ahead.So, what kind of relationship do you have with your machine?
