And so it goes! Going, going and gone. The last moments of my last vacation are upon me. It has been a good week, quite productive, and if I must do my Puritanical inventory, I did get a lot accomplished. Not as much as was on my list, but it was good.
It’s funny, but in the last year or so, looking down the barrel of retirement, I have tried to set myself up for all the things that I want to do. Spinning, knitting, weaving, felting, sewing. Guernsey goats and lots of cheese and milk. I have found one of my dream looms (the Bergman), and gotten involved in my dream goat breed, the Golden Guernseys.
As far as the sewing goes, I have been planning on doing quite a bit of sewing with Maine Fiberarts, as well as with other friends who are good with fabric and machines. But I have a 1951 Singer in a cabinet that is heavy as all get-out. And so I have been searching very off-handedly for a Singer Featherweight for the last 6 months or so. Unbelievably, I found one on Craig’s List this past week (and it was not priced out of my reach). My husband and I were able to meet with the very nice lady who was selling it. We met at Barnes and Noble in Augusta yesterday morning. What a great little machine! I am looking forward to many happy hours with her.
