Has a week really passed by already? Time flies, and here we are at another Friday. Thanks to Kelli for hosting these lovely Show and Tells! This week, I'm going to show you our sewing machine.
It's not as old as the lovely antique sewing machines I saw at some blogs and websites, but like many other much loved things we own, this sewing machine is a good few years older than I am. Mom used it to make many of the outfits I wore as a baby and child. It didn't work well for a while, and for some time we actually thought it was broken beyond repair – but recently, our kind new neighbor and friend tinkered with it a bit, and it turns out all it needed was a bit of oiling.
So, with the sewing machine good as new, it was time for me to start learning how to use it. To some of you ladies and young girls who passed that stage at 14, it might sound funny, but only now I'm working on making my first apron. I was a bit late on learning many other domestic skills as well, such as cooking and cleaning – but hey, I'm making progress!
In the pictures below, you can see the sewing machine and some scattered supplies. I can already see myself in these evenings which are getting longer and longer, cheerfully working on projects (which I hope to share with you!). I know I'm going to enjoy every moment of it.
Thank you for stopping by for this Show and Tell – I hope you enjoyed your visit. Looking forward to seeing you again!
