Recently, I wrote about a treasure trove of presser feet that I received for my sewing machines. Although I was really after only a couple of the feet, I am discovering how to use some of the other feet in the collection. My latest learning experience (Who says you can’t learn something new after 70?) is using the pintuck foot. The new set had three different sizes of pintuck feet. I had to label them so I can tell them apart
The second bedroom in my home is quite small. When we bought the house, a twin sized bed literally filled the room. Since most of the time there are just the two of us empty nesters, I decided that the room would be much more useful as a sewing room. Since I have three brother sewing machines, I call it El Quarto de los Tres Hermanos, The Bedroom of the Three Brothers. Its fun to say I am in the bedroom with three brothers!
Since I knew that we were going to be visiting some hot areas in southeast Asia, not to mention how hot and humid it is here in Florida, I wanted to make a couple of linen dresses. I love linen! I know it wrinkles like crazy but it is so cool in the heat. I just tell myself that linen is upscale and quality.
A few days ago our mail carrier delivered a well padded envelope which Mr M retrieved. When he brought it in he shook it slightly and asked, “Did you get a box of candy?”. Looking at the Chinese lettering on the outside of the envelope I laughed and said, “Well, sort of…”. Not really candy, but for me, almost as exciting: it was a set of 44 sewing machine presser feet.
