Sewing: A creative mess is better than tidy idleness

    Newer Older

    For DIP-it-Thursday : Welcome to the machine

    I decided to take the literal route and took pictures of my grandma's old sewing machine. And I mean OLD~ It makes her feet hurt when she uses it these days.

    My grandma made a living as a seamstress. She's pretty good at it too. I love it when she stays with us. I get all my clothes resized XD (My sister and I love to shop. But a lot of the time, the clothes we like don't fit us well. They're usually too big for us. But we buy them anyway, knowing that our grandma can make the adjustments ^___^)

    Camera used: Canon Digital Rebel XTi
    Lens used: Canon 50mm f/1.8

    Thanks :)

      My grandma was also a dressmaker, and she had a similar looking machine. She had a couple of other sewing machines (electric ones) as she had some other ladies working with her in her shop. But that machine was the one my grandma let me used first time I tried my hands on sewing. Now, both my grandma and the sewing machine are gone. Your photo brought warm memories of days gone by with my grandma. Thank you for sharing.
