The big machine

You know the one I mean. The really big one. On a 14′ frame. That starts with a Gam- and ends with a -mill. I spent some time on one for the first time this weekend… and I’ve gotta say, I’m starting to understand why my mother prefers feathers to stippling. There’s way less uncertainty involved.

Pudding suffers absolutely no uncertainty at any time. As soon as I spread my sample piece on the floor, it was hers.

  1. This is very cool. I’m not very handy with sewing machines, so this is terribly impressive to me.

    On an unrelated note,

    Have you read “The Blue Castle” by L.M. Montgomery? I just finished it and thought it was a book you might enjoy. It’s not as lyrical or well-written as her other books. But, it’s also a book I couldn’t put it down and read the whole of it on a rainy Monday afternoon.

  2. I haven’t read that one, no, and I’ll look for it. In addition to the Anne books I’ve read Story Girl, Golden Road, and Pat of Silver Bush… the last of which seemed sort of disjointed and revealing, the same way Agatha Christie books sometimes do.
