I could have used a treadle sewing machine today. Our power was out for a good part of the day due to high winds. Here in St. Louis we are getting the wind and dropping temperatures from the big winter storm pushing across the plains from Colorado to the Great Lakes. We are far enough south to have missed the snow. Not being able to sew, surf the internet, press fabric, bake cookies, or even read (due to the gloominess in the house), I cut out patches for the baby quilt I am working on and then took a long winter's nap.
The goof balls who predicted the end of the world on December 21st can crawl back into their holes now. It is already the 21st on the other side of the world and there are no reports of the world ending. Tomorrow is the first day of winter and the shortest day of the year. Rejoice! The days will be getting longer again after then.
This evening I sewed up fourteen bow tie blocks for the baby quilt, so something useful was accomplished after all today. I sewed on my vintage 1941 Singer Featherweight this evening. What do you sew on?
