I pulled out the machine and thread and needles and various other parts and bits here and there over the years and then stuffed it back into the dark and increasingly horribly organized cabinet.
Today I drug it all out and wow. I have a million seam rippers. 42 blue zillion little plastic containers of straight pins and 39 blue zillion little plastic containers of safety pins. I have beyond sufficient pairs of scissors. Embarrassing multiples of everything.
And the spools of thread/bobbins/tape/trim/elastic/velcro.
The little desk makes a perfect sewing table and those drawers are amazing.
I think the first thing I'm going to sew is a nice, pretty, sewing machine cover!
I moved other stuff around in bulk. It will be likely years before I head off to get another roll of paper towels and go to the cabinet in the bedroom instead of the armoire in the fish room. But, change is good...
And the baseball is 0-0 in the 9th.
Oh and the 14 pairs of shoes and boots I left on the 'free' shelf yesterday afternoon? Gone this morning. Totally fair trade for my new sewing center!
