Tra la! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That darling month when ev'ryone throws
It's time to do
A wretched thing or two,
And try to make each precious day
One you'll always rue!
Well, there's nothing like a Me-Made Month for that!
Here's Day One, but I don't plan to do this everyday no matter how much you beg and plead.
And speaking of ruing, here is my new aquisition:
She's a 1956 (I think--between 1956 and 1958) Elna Supermatic I "won" on eBay (these are the seller's photos.) And she came with 16 cams! plus some feet, bobbins, and the accessory box.
Plus a cord, knee-bar controller (I grew up with a knee-controlled Singer) and a case that turns the free arm into a flat bed. Made in Switzerland, she will run like a Swiss watch--once I get her going.
Meanwhile I've done something awful to the elastic waistband of my Vogue 8499 and will have to cut it off and try again. So I've downloaded and taped together the Collette Sorbetto pattern to make a top to go with my new PJ Party jammies. I think I will be the last person on the interwebs to make the Sorbetto, but you know, I wanted all of you to work out any bugs first.
