Remember that Sears Kenmore sewing machine I purchased at the thrift store this summer? Well, it turns out that it was a score! All it needed was to be cleaned and a new bobbin case. I got it out the shop on Monday and started a project tonight. I hope to finish this weekend, but as I have not been sewing much lately, I've got to get back in the groove of it and plus I reinforce every seam. It peeves me to purchase bags (like the very colorful one I bought in Charleston that's already raveling and now I'm going to have to fix- uggghh!) and have the seams separate when you haven't had them that long. Until I one day purchase a Serger I'm satisfied to just reinforce the seams, even if I'm a slow poke. :-)
I think she needs a name that's not so "teeny bop". I think I'll name her Gertrude.
