I had a few moments when I posted about the silk dupioni the other day, so did a quick stroll through blogland. Really more of a mad dash. As I dashed through a friend's blog roll I caught sight of a post title "Sewing With History". The title did the trick, it caught my eye. The post was about her mom bringing back some vintage buttons from visiting a relative. Farther into the post she talks about this little treasure she found tucked in with her husband's grandmother's sewing machine. A log of EVERY SINGLE time she or someone else used her machine. Everything from mending a pillowcase to helping her daughter make a party dress for a high school dance. How precious is that? Oh how I wish I had done that through the years. The story it would tell. Can we even talk about how pristine that 38 year old machine looks? Amazing.
