It is not really peculiar that the sewing machine feet you find in thrift stores and antique malls are in pristine condition because I have been sewing for many years and almost never ever use the feet that came with the machines. I don't know why, but that is the truth. I have decided to try out some of the feet, like the ruffler or the narrow hemmer. I think that using some of those complicate feet requires a steep learning curve, but if other people can master it, so can I.
This next week is going to be a killer, veggie and fruit-wise. The apples are calling out to be made into sauce, and WSP just picked the peaches. Oy vey, so much peeling in my future.
