I am an avid old movie buff. I have two different versions of Little Women. As I was watching the 1949 version today, I noticed that Meg (Janet Leigh) was sewing on sheer pink fabric on a treadle sewing machine. I did manage to pause the DVD and get a couple pictures of her sewing machine. She was actually sewing too!!! Feet moving and her hands moving the sheer pink fabric through the machine. The scene is right at the very beginning of the movie if you are curious to see one of these in action!!!
It is very warm here today. 90!!!! Too hot for me...I have the air on.
When we first had the central air put in, the workman said that my cutting/sewing room would be an icebox since it is first in the connection!
Perfect for me as I am always too warm!
Since my thumb is too sore to quilt on the King of Green (pricks and slices from opening and closing those safety pins), I shut myself in my "icebox" and set up a mini sewing station.
I was in heaven.
A new sewing project for Great grandson #4, whose arrival is due in September. I added my traveling TV tray ironing station and I was all set for a nice sewing day. After a few hours DH was getting very lonely so I am back out of that room. Sigh! Maybe I will go back later tonight.
Anyway, I am pressing and cutting and one of the fabrics that should have had a half yard cut had only 10". Not enough for where it needed to go. And the same thing on another print. I will have to add some of my own fabric here and there. No big whoop! But I think I should offer my OCD services to that store to make their kits up for them. I would be VERY good at it!!!!
