I Wasn't Kidding....

....about that Nora Batty thing. I intend to make myself a wardrobe of aprons to sweep the front stoop in. My first attempt at sewing anything in 20 years will be a psychedelic version perfect for my summer puttering. I plan on making a fall version if this turns out well enough.

Of course I had to go out and buy a sewing machine too. I liked this one immediately because it is simple to operate. It says so right on the box. There are numbers printed on the machine itself to show you how to thread the thing. I love that. It's like a big kid's toy sewing machine. I've had some pretty bad experiences with sewing machines in the past so I am hoping that the simple machine and I will get along long enough to crank out an apron or two.
