Last week a friend of mine through the historical society brought in a bag of stuff. She said it was either from her mother or grandmother (this friend is in her 70's, so that could be going back a bit). It was all stitching related and she thought I could use the things for myself or perhaps for a client or two. So, I've gone through the bag. Some things I will share with you as the month goes by, but I wanted to get this in right away.
It's called the Singercraft Guide. As you can see, I have the box, guide itself, and what looks to be an instruction manual. I have yet to read the manual. So, let's see how many guesses I get over the month (about how long it will take me to get around to reading that manual). And, maybe if someone can guess it right, I'll send them a little something from my stash - if I can get myself together enough to do that too. No promises yet!
Also along with the above came this:
Intrigued? Me too! It's been hot here over the last two month; these last few days, we've cooled off to the 80's. However, Tuesday we're in for a round of oven-like temperatures again. What we really need is rain. We've only had an inch and 7/8s of rain since the beginning of June. That's why I'm not showing anymore garden pictures - there IS no more garden. My trees are stressed and I'm waiting for the bank book to grow a bit more so I can go out and buy gaitors for them. Then hopefully they'll survive this awful summer! Hope the weather is better where you are.
