Last night I panicked. My Singer serger started making an awful noise and my Husky straight stitch began sewing on its on (ghost Sewist). Yeah sure I haven’t fired up the machine in 5-8 years but so what…… Right?😂 nah I didn’t get it tuned up and no I didn’t oil it. (yes I know better. I teach my students care and maintenance on the first day of class) So why don’t I heed my own advices? #hardheaded.
Instead I threaded it and started cranking out blouses left and right because that’s what I do………… And was only a matter of time. God watches over fools and babies is what my grandmother used to say.
God is good. Today I went to an estate sale and I was sure I’d missed out on these items or they would be over priced. Well I haggled a little and walked away with two Elna sewing machines. One Elna 9000 and one Elna overlock!! How cool is that? Now I can get back to sewing later this evening. My apologies to those of you who have reached out to me in the last 24 hours. I’ve been in panic mode. Now I can breathe and return your phone calls and emails😉
I’ve been perusing old photos and wouldn’t you know I’ve been rocking the #pussybowblouse since I was a little fashionista. This vintage photo is of me with my great grandmother and her sisters during my 7th birthday celebration. I was really pumped about celebrating my birthday with my close family and as you can see I’ve always enjoyed smiling for the camera😉
