Along with directing and script writing,
DD has been doing a lot of production design
so mama had this idea that a
sewing machine might come in handy.
This small Janome in the coolest colors
was a special on-line
with free shipping so I ordered one
for her B-day.
It is lightweight, will require little storage space
in her teensy place, and has just enough stitches
to make it practical for her to use.
Yesterday she sat down at the table,
taught herself how to thread it, run it,
and after scavenging through my
enormous supply of wools
popped out with two "art" style pillows
for her brother and his sweetie
and the new place they move into this weekend.
Since they never read the blog,
I am not spoiling any surprise.
She was so pleased, did a great job, took to it like,
well....you know... quack quack
and I'm hoping I can convince her to
try a small quilt before she leaves.
Goodness knows I have enough fabric!
makes mama happy
Kinda wish I had bought one for myself in bright orange.
Merry almost 25th of December (wink)
