On My Sewing Table This Morning....Sewing Machine Stories
This is Singer and her newly adopted big Brother. They have been getting to know each other all week, enjoying a vacation of sorts. Soon they will be getting down to business as Singer shows big Brother the ropes. I have a feeling big Brother will teach Singer a thing or two along the way. Isn't that what big Brothers do?
Big Brother can do some fancy things, but Singer will always be the workhorse of the sewing room. She needs to go away to the machine repair shop for some adjustments, but she will be back.
Singer has a history of her own, starting out in a classroom full of teenage girls and more recently being used for free motion quilting, something no one thought she would ever be able to do.
Big Brother has already made a name for himself, as the UPS truck that brought him ran over the water meter which caused a major flood of waterin his new yard and the adjacent highway and cost us a plumber's service. Big Brother hopes to make lots of quilts, pocketbooks, clothespin bags and table runners using fancy decorative stitches and some day be the star in more sewing machine stories of his own.
