There's just something charming about old wooden spools and a vintage pincushion...

Of course I started adding swatch portraits to the wall above my sewing machine after seeing these at purl bee.

Got this from the thrift yesterday! It's pink and sew cute! ;)

How manuals have changed through the years. Now cast aside and probably not even read at all. Then elaborately worded and designed , peppered with the sentiments , just not seen today.

Sewing workshop Trinity-Sergius Lavra. For almost seven centuries, since the foundation the monastery, the monks of Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra sewed vestments themselves. The founder of the monastery St. Sergius of Radonezh himself sewed clothes for the brethren.

The three spacious and bright workshops are working 20 talented masters. In collective treasure reputation. All are doing with a prayer.

The vestments manufactured in the Trinity-Sergius Lavra, wearing Orthodox priests of America, Italy, Israel, Greece, Japan, China and other countries.

I blogged about it here.

Photography is probably the only thing I do this summer...never imagined it would be this boring. At least I have some time to think of ideas, nevertheless I still feel that I have a block at the moment.


For this one I took a picture close to the needle of our old sewing machine...

Macro views of everyday things... a sewing machine ...



This is the sewing machine I use. It belonged to my step grandma Millie and as far as I know, it is from the 1930's. It works pretty good and I love looking at it!

Various sewing button on white background.

this sewing machine has been in my husbands family for about 3 generations ( that we know of..) and well over 100 years old. I placed it in my antique hutch for this picture. ( hence the water stains beneath the machine) I converted it to sepia , added grain and a touch of vignetting

Grace's dress has a knitted bodice with star button; attached rayon print skirt with rickrack at the hem and pink tulle underneath...

By me; she's still working on a straight stitch. :))

in old town shanghai...he told me it was ok to take his pic...but was still shy, his kids no so much...

A while back just after I opened my wesite I had an email from a lady who said my cakes were lovely and if she ever needed a cake in the future she would order one from me, which I thought was lovely and then just a while later I had an order off her requiring a Singer sewing machine cake with co-ordinating cupcakes for her mother's 70th........these all got picked up yesterday morning and travelled all the way from Gosport to Manchester, I do hope everything got there in one piece, although we did make sure everything was secure and flat! When the daughter picked them up she said she was blown away by it so I hope her mother feels the same way! :o)


The cupcakes are Vanilla and half were decorated to look like Pin Cushions and the other half had buttons and thimbles ontop.

Spent Sunday on a super sewing mode! A lot of cute things came out and i will add them today to my etsy!


various sewing items...


I'm going to make other items a little more. ^_^

The earliest thimble made up of bronze was identified in Rome in the city of Pompeii in the first century AD. Initially thimble was used to protect the finger from piercing while sewing and to push the needle in to hard fabric or leather. Later as the textile industry flourished and the fabric became thin and soft it was used for many other purposes and became a curator’s item
