My mom gave me this photo on Sunday.
It's me in 1969.
(Thanks Mom for the Oh so flattering Pixie haircut...sigh)
I was 8 years old.
Sewing in my jammies.
Which, oddly enough
is still my favorite way to sew :)
I still own this machine.
It's a Singer Industrial Model 329.
I inherited it from her
when she upgraded to her monster industrial machine
that takes 2 grown men to move.
I can't remember a time when there wasn't thread
all over our house.
I fell alseep every night to the comforting hummmmmm
of her machine.
I've owned a few machines since then.
But I have to admit,
I haven't owned another machine that can match
the speed and beauty of the straight stitch
that this old Singer still delivers.
My daily companion these days
is my Husqvarna Viking Emerald 118.
What is your machine of choice?
