Hello there! Hoping you have all had a Jubilant Jubilee today.
Scary photo eh? I wore these glasses and boppers to school on our jubilee picnic day. I was told I looked like an irritated wasp.... actually I can see the resemblance.
I'm really here to join in with Sian's Storytelling Sunday. It has a Jubilee theme too.
I decided to make some patriotic bunting by cutting up some old curtains. I enlisted my mum to sewing machine duties while I measured and cut. Nigel was the runner, making sure the demanding machinist had enough of the right colour.
We used my old Singer...
Do you remember I mentioned it before. It looks lovely but only has one type of stitch but I'm sure even if it had more it still wouldn't help my sewing abilities (see my sewing story here). It was my nan's and has been converted to electric by adding a foot pedal. Mum remarked that it sewed pretty well considering how old it must be. 'I bet you can probably find out how old it is by looking on line' I said. Nigel noticed a brass plate with a code on and wrote it down. A few minutes later he had found it was made in 1912. Exactly 100 years old.
Isn't it a nice thought to think a machine of that age is still being useful.
Not bad for a 100 year old...
