Some days it would be nice to post about a lot of different little subjects, but this blog software says I have to have a title for every post. It’s sort of like email, but even more insistent that there be a title/subject. So today will be a little of this and that.
There was an essay in today’s paper about how quickly computers get old and planned obsolescence. It made me think about our sewing machines and the fact that a good sewing machine lasts at least 20 years. And look at the Singer featherweight machines. Of all the machines I have owned, that is probably the one that I enjoy using most of all. And if I had a treadle machine, I would certainly learn to use it so that I could exercise while sewing.
Speaking of exercise while sewing, do you sit at your machine with everything right at your fingertips, or do you organize things so that you have to get up out of the chair and go to different “stations” to do things. I have my ironing station in another room. Yesterday, I set up my cutting station so that it is also in a different room than my machine. Of course, my children grew up and moved away, so I have rooms to use. . . Of course, my husband thinks my quilting has taken over the whole house. . .
The twins will be three this weekend, so I’m still working on the digger quilts. Will write more about them tomorrow.
