Sweet memories :)

My grandmother always said I should save up and buy a Bernina. Well, that ain't happening anytime soon! In the meantime my Kenmore is doing a respectable job


Oh boy! This one brings back memories Charlotte. One year my mom made me a bunch of those darling heart shaped calico ornaments for my Christmas tree. They are very precious to me.

I learned to sew on my mom's Singer, I'm guessing it was from the 40's - gosh that thing weighed a TON! I still have (and use) the Singer my mom bought me 32 years ago. It's not much, but then my sewing talent isn't much either! :)

I love your daughters pinch pot and that it has been beloved all these years.


Our mom made us dresses like this too. Some on purpose to grow into. The clay treasure is precious.
