Lucky Friday the 13th for Happy Valentine

12pfaffI borrowed this sewing machine from my mother 23 years ago. Today I will return it — sorry, Mom, I got a little side-tracked.

You see my extension table? It’s a box that happens to be the same height as my machine and heavy enough to stay put while I free-motion quilt (there’s a cassette tape recorder inside). This sewing machine has been and still is a real workhorse. The old gal is reliable and strong. She has been a good friend for a very long time, we have done a lot of good work together.

No time to talk, must stitch!! Thank you, Marty, thank you thank you thank you!
