I was talking to Mama about my problems with my machine. She said she still had hers. We had taken a sewing class at Singer together way back when. I asked if I could have it. She said I could. She said it is unused, but old. I said I didn't care. I could take it to a Singer store and they would explain how to get the tension right on the bobbin, but I didn't think I could take a Brothers machine to a Singer place and I wasn't sure about getting somebody at WalMart to give me sewing lessons...that's where I bought the Brothers machine.
She said, "I have a lot of stuff that goes with it, too. Well, it's not much, but it's a lot."
I'm making a sewing spot in my playroom. I unpacked my ironing board. It's one I found in a rental house we moved into. So I don't know how old it is, but it wasn't new when I got it about thirty years ago. I had to buy a new cover for it because the foam part of the other cover had disintegrated. So I spent the morning messing with the antique ironing board.
Then I decided a wallpaper table would be perfect for laying out material and patterns on. So it took me a while to clean it up and put it together.
But the sewing area is coming along nicely, at a cost of $5 for the ironing board cover:)
Recycling is green. Being a tightwad is big on recycling. So I may be green because I'm cheap...wait, thrifty:)
