I got the sewing machine out this morning to make a birthday gift for my mother-in-law. Sounds nerdy to say, but a happy feeling came over me when I heard the sound of the machine humming. Then Dylan walked in the room & made some comment about how it was good to hear that noise again. Funny how the humming of the sewing machine is a familiar & comforting sound to us. A common noise that has been missing for a few weeks. It's good to have it back & interesting that in this time of change & uncertainty it grounds not only me, but my whole family.
And the gift for my mother-in-law...an Artsy Clutch from Bend the Rules Sewing. I'm probably the last person on earth to make one of these. Really easy, really cute & a great little gift.
