sewin' on summer!
while my girls--old viking, phoebe and trudy--are temporarily on hiatus, been sewing on mom's vintage 1961 singer 328k whom i have named summer....it seemed like a 60s kind of name...remember those days? hard to believe my sewing days started in the 1950s....it was just yesterday i do believe. mom bought this as a repo portable; when taken back by singer, the original cabinet was badly damaged. mom used it as a portable for many years and then got this cabinet. got some stars from barbara brackman's sew along all cut and ready to put together. i'm only 10 weeks behind (oh the horror!) and tomorrow is another chapter. the limited stash i have on hand isn't enough for all those i need to make but will do what i can. since the move can come any day, whatever i get done is a bonus. and today's gratitudes? nice early summer weather, a rhubarb pie in the works, a good night's sleep, lilacs filling the air and the promise of moving any day.....
