We can work together

Two sad eyes,

Hanging shoulders,

no energy and a sleepless night,

It is so lonely!!


My sewing machine is disappointed in me,

I can feel it. It makes me sad.


But I can cheer it up. I have all these ideas in my

head. I have energy to sew up a new pants, a blouse, a shirt or maybe two.

Look at all my lovely fabrics, my scissors, tape-measure and thread, seamripper, my

elastic and velcro, all ready to start.


We don’t have to be sad, we can work together, we are crazy good together,

we stitch and cut, we ruffle and pleat, we go fast and slow and by the

end of the night….. we all SMILE again!

    My sewing machine has to be really sad. It used to be so busy, but hasn’t been touched in a few years. Love this.!!

    I learned many years ago, when I was teaching a group of ladies to sew clothes for their children, that a sewing machine can be your best friend or your worst enemy. It’s hard to tell someone that they are fighting their machine. My advice is to put the most money that you can into a sewing machine. If you can’t right now, save and upgrade when you can. Would your hubby buy the cheapest tools/items for his hobby? Doubtful.
    The better the machine, the more enjoyable your sewing will be… and you’ll want to learn & practice more!

    Beckie, that is some seriously sound advice, I couldn’t agree more!

    What a wonderful post!
    I recently found out that my granny made clothes for all of the children’s dolls in her neighborhood. Eventhough she’s been gone for a few years now, and I’m adopted, I love to be able to make doll shenanigans for my daughter – it was inherited by “nuture”, I guess. I so terribly love the care that goes into all of the Bamboletta dolls and clothes. <3 all of the magic the sewing mummas put into each frock. 🙂
