A new friend has come to stay at our house, courtesy of one of my mother's coworkers/PTA cronies/friends.
She is lovely, in a mid-century kitschy kind of way. She is blue & white, & mounted in a cabinet. She is also very temperamental, but boy can she create a straight seam! And, aside from some moments of true insanity when she refused to thread the bobbin, and another moment of my insanity when I realized that she didn't have a foot pedal, it's been nice to have a new roommate.
On the tie one on challenge, they're doing pockets for May & June. I think my new friend will be very, very helpful on that front! Yahoo for pockety apron goodness.
