Post 103!!!!!!!!!!

So this may be a bit belated, but I'm thrilled I made it past 100 posts! I never thought I'd enjoy blogging as much as I do! So in honor of my 103rd post I'm going to post one of my favorite pictures of the "magic machine".

The magic machine is my old trusty sewing machine that changed my life. It is an ancient Dressmaker brand green monster that has quite a history. It started out belonging to a great aunt of mine who was an avid seamstress and liked to have the top of the line equipment. Well, old green went out of style for her quickly and she was just about to toss it in the trash when my grandpa saved it from certain doom and took it home to grandma. Grandma used it for years and then passed it on to my mom who used it for common mending and making a bunch of denim quilts. When I moved to Idaho it came with, even though I had no idea how to sew! It collected dust and then made the trip back home with us. I stumbled upon Craftster and decided I could master the magic machine! With the help of the poppet pattern and good old trial and error I became a whiz! I wouldn't trade it in for a new top of the line machine! It has helped me to craft so many things that have made so many people happy, including myself. To watch a work of love go under that foot gives me so much joy. So there you have it my story of the magic machine! A part of my life that can never be replaced! It may be old, a bit tattered, and dirty, but it is shiny and new in my eyes.

Very cool picture! If I'd tried to take that, my finger would have been sewn over.

awesome pic! Once you get the "feel" for your machine, you never want to part with it. Yours helps you create magic!
