Sewing nostalgia

by - Thursday, March 05, 2009


I finally finished my Crafty Slacker Get Er Done project! Of course, it is quite a milestone since I sewed it using my  99 year old grandma's antique Singer treadle machine. Suddenly I am in a time warp and I imagine grandma's sunlight filled house and the noisy clang of the pedal as she sewed the afternoon away. 

I'm a hand sewer/slow sewer by tradition and this is the first time I've ever machine sewed. I'm glad I'm moving up to the next level, LOL!  It is quite fun and I think I'll churn out more sewing crafts this way. In parallel, this is the closest thing to writing correspondences in fountain pen. What do you think?  I'd still continue to meticulously hand sew precious little crafts though...


Excuse the wonky lines! I need more practice!
