My blogfriend Karen, over at Sew Many Ways [a brilliant blog, always full of great ideas and tutorials] Has posted this picture today. It is Advice from a 1949 Singer Sewing Machine manual.
I have spent the morning in jeans and an old tee-shirt, the sewing machine on the kitchen table, Radio 4 playing in the background.
There is washing up as yet undone
The beds are stripped- but I have yet to put clean sheets on them
The floors need to be vacuumed
There are bins to empty and dead flowers to be thrown out
And I am not wearing fresh lipstick or a clean dress
I am definitely not ‘neatly put together’
But oh! how I have enjoyed my sewing.
Now I have to finish preparing my sermon [I don’t think the person who wrote the Singer Manual would countenance women preachers]
Then I will finish the other chores!
