Today is 7/17/17.
(July 17, 2017)
I love all those sevens!
My sister Leona and I finally had a sewing bee together today. She doesn't live far away, so she brought her items to sew and I had my sewing machine set up on the table.
This is my old Pfaff I bought in 1981, and which I'd replaced 2 years ago with a brand new Pfaff.
I haven't been sewing much sad to say as I'm rather frightened of the new machine.
But today was fun, sewing together at the same table.
I made the little dress for Grace up above, and Leona made 2 pillowcases, and 2 body pillow cases. She sews very rapidly. I also worked on an 18" doll dress but it's not finished yet. Still, it's a beginning and I feel encouraged.
Here I am, sewing on my new machine. My trusty old Pfaff circa 1981 is in the foreground.
