Catherine's Birthday

Saturday my daughter turned 13.  We had a lot of fun making crafts together.  I will share what it was we were making later...because it is a surprise for someone and she hasn't gotten it yet.

Catherine has really enjoyed sewing on her Singer Feather Weight.  We have had a lot of laughs around all the manual things that you have to remember to do.  It sounds like a clock.  Really reminds you of the Industrial Revolution this country was built on.  This machine was found in a thrift store in Alabama for 15.00 before my daughter was born.

We finshed our day off with a game of Operation and Root Beer Floats.  It was such a fun birthday!!!  Here brother Isaac is hoping that she will not have a steady hand.  He is so competitive.

Hi! I have a Singer sewing machine almost identical in look to yours. I inherited mine from my grandmother, and I think it must date back to the 40s, at least. It still works and I still use it and love it dearly!

Happy Birthday to Catherine!

And I love your fabric cup ~ so enchanting. Very beautiful. xo Kari

My daughter has been sewing off an on since she was 7.

What does your daughter like to sew?

I think I will post pictures today of what Catherine was sewing.
