Getting friendly with a 47 year old Singer...

Thanks to the help of a very good (and patient) friend of mine, and my Mum's 1961 singer sewing machine... I managed to make this bag on a Sunday a few weeks ago. As we worked away for the afternoon, we were accompanied by the sweet hum of the sewing machine which is 6 years my senior.

Not only was it quite easy, I love the result! Mum's sewing machine and I got along quite well - we are still on speaking terms. At this rate, I think we might become quite well acquainted! Good friends even.

So it seems I must 'sing' farewell to my sewing machine for a while. Well at least it will be feeling valued again after a long period in the dark!!

I thought for a second that this was going to be a post about a 47yo Scottish virgin with an amazing voice...

Keep up the good work...

Very nice! And it's not just the machine, of course, it's you too. Everyone doesn't have that knack, and I know this because the first and last time I used a sewing machine, I sewed through my thumb! :)
