The repairman said there was no hope, so after a proper but short period of mourning (I can't be without a sewing machine for more than a few days), I bought a new machine. I am now spending quality time in my sewing room bonding with my new Baby Lock in hopes of falling in love with it. I keep telling myself it is a lovely machine that will do anything I want of it, but every once in a while (like when I try to raise the presser foot with my left hand instead of my right), some nagging little voice inside me says, "It's no Viking." Why is change always to hard? I hate learning a whole new machine, especially since I truly loved my old one. Enough. I will love my Baby Lock. That's all there is to it. And see the pretty pillows I have made? It's a wonderful sewing machine, right?
Vintage burlap feed sack and ribbed fabric pillows, one wearing a vintage crocheted collar.
Burlap and lace -- don't you love it?
White on white - with ruffles!
Ticking and toile.
The back - envelope style for easy removal of the pillow insert.
I'm liking this new Baby Lock more every day. Stay tuned -- there are more pillows on the horizon!
