Thoroughly Modern??!!!

OK so as much as I love new fangled equipment (see previous post!), I love my sewing machine even more.  Check this baby OUT!



No fancy stuff here.  This is a Singer 301 ‘Featherweight’ (ha!  It weighs 16 pounds!) and was my Grandma Willoughby’s sewing machine.  It was made in the 1950s and has TWO stitches, front and back…which is all I needed to fix Hadleys favorite blanket (made by our dear friend Dianne D 10 years ago for his baby shower!).

I love, love, LOVE to sew…but alas…many other crafts have taken me away from it.  There was a day when I’d make my prom dresses.  A friend from high school reminded me last weekend that when I wanted a new outfit back then (we’re talkin’ the 70s folks!), I’d MAKE it!  Ahhh those were the days.   Did I mention I love to sew???!!!

On to other things…I hear a can of black paint calling my name…time to get to work for the shop (Room With A Past) – we are open this next weekend!
