So I have bought a new sewing machine - and this is the first thing I've made - I also hemmed a pair of pants, but maybe that doesn't count. I was very selfish and didn't make a dog thing - I made a bracelet. One of the things I want to do is to make bracelets - or you could maybe more accurately call them - "cuffs" - out of old belts that I think are really neat, but my old sewing machine wouldn't go through them, but my new sewing machine will go through them no problem!
This is my new machine! It's an antique singer sewing machine called a "Singer 15-91 or a 15J in Canada", and it's really beautiful - bought on Kijiji from a lady in Kentville. In beautiful condition - it was made from the 1930's to the 1950's - so it's at least 60 years old and works beautifully.
These are a couple photos I took on September 11th of the big dogs being cute. This is actually Charlie yawning. Doesn't he look fierce half way through a yawn! haha!
