My Creative Space

My assistant , George, and I have made an indoor football this week. In this neck of the woods we are desperate for indoor type activities as the weather is still revolting. 0 degrees Celcius yesterday morning at school drop-off, and nearly 5 degrees at pick-up time, with constant rain in between. Yuk. Good sewing weather.......
Also good weather for enjoying more men in knitwear.....

And pondering what to do with this gorgeous old Singer sewing machine. My stepmother gave it to me last week and I think it was her grandmother's originally. It is totally dependent on hand power and would probably work if it got a bit of attention. I'm not sure what to do with it really. If only we had a spare room, like we did when I grew up, and all the items that nobody knew what to do with anymore went in there. A bit like a museum, except with fairly crappy stuff.

Anyway, if you have any suggestions, let me know. A doorstop? A paperwieght? An object to throw at annoying people? Hope you are all having a creative week no matter what the weather....


  1. I love that fabric!!! Is it vintage? Drool!

  2. Oh my it's yours. Will immediately need to purchase!

  3. Awww hope the weather is friendly soon. We currently have clouds and I am praying for rain to drench the steaming hot desert at the moment. Cute football and adorable top.....But I am still kind of laughing at the vest :P

  4. Isn't that such a wonderful sewing machine? I have no suggestions - other than to adore it.

  5. Oh that stripey vest....what a natty man ;o)
    Love your 'new' machine - looks like it will be fun to play with.
    Sending warm thoughts - lots of HOT CHOCOLATE!
