Continued from last week:
I finally got the foot pedal and cord for the sewing machine of Mom’s. It is brand new and was at the local sewing machine store, can you imagine! I hooked it up last night and it worked!! Except that I couldn’t sew anything without bobbin thread. This machine is so advanced (and I haven’t sewn on a machine for over 20 years) that I had to print out the instruction booklet to find out how to put thread on the bobbin!! Alas, the print was too small for my tired eyes last night so I sat down with a larger print novel, “The Spider’s Web” by Peter Tremayne. It is a mystery set in 9th Century Ireland and it is sooo good. Almost wore out my eyes reading til midnight.
