Long, long ago . . .

I used my sewing machine. This picture shows how long ago it was.

I’m waiting for the roofer to come next week. After the roof is on and all leaks are sealed the new floor can go into the unfinished room. After the floor, the walls can be painted, furniture moved, new storage cabinets and shelves installed, and THEN I can sew again!

My mother’s old Singer 101 is in the storage room and if I can move enough paint cans and boxes away I think I’ll try some free motion quilting. I just bought a new darning foot for the 101.
All I need now is a darling little girl at my side. The tin box is filled with some old sewing stuff.

hehehehe it HAS been awhile hasn't it?? We are so fickle...we just take advantage of our machine, knowing it will always be there, and then one day, flash, it's gone and we sewers fall apart. [not sewers, SEW-ers]

Aww! Come on up and stay with me. I have lots of room and some extra sewing machines. Of course, you will have to endure Portland weather!!

How frustrating to have the urge, & not be able to sew!
Is that old machine a treadle?

Gerrie,
Oh, how nice of you. I think I'll stay down here where the weather is lovely right now. I have to "supervise" the roof work and the re-flooring and painting of my triangle room. Thanks.

Meggie,
The old machine is an electric one that runs as smooth as silk. (Unless you mean the one in the top picture.)

Those Singers really are beautiful machines. I wish I had a car that was as reliable as the old Featherweight.
