when my grandma died I was about -1 or -2 years young. She died of cancer and the only thing I know are pictures and that all my relatives think we (me and my grandma) look pretty much alike. I think she looked like my dad with a wig. So now I own 3 things that formerly belonged to her:
1. a cruzifix (wooden cross with Jesus) … which is pretty interesting because I have no idea why I have that. I'm not even religious.
2. a mirror … totally ugly sixties style (not the stylish sixties) and the frame broke last year so now it's only the glass
3. my sewing machine … it's an old Singer Futura, about 35 years old and it's the sewing machine that taught me how to sew. It's the machine I sew my first bag, scarve, skirt, dress, pillow with. It's not made of plastics but metal. It's the one heirloom that really rocked … that really changed something and that really meant something to me. And now the machine is not working anymore and never will again because it's irreparable.
Good Bye Sewing Machine!
But I don't want to leave you all depressed so I have news for you!
It's time for the next Coffee, Cake & Crafting!!!
Sunday, December 4th we will bind books, sew, knit, make paper and animated clips.
And inbetween we will chat, drinks coffee and tee and eat lots of cake.
At least that's my plan so far …
And in preparation for christmas there will be soap-making workshops …
