A little while ago I strolled into a wonderful tea shop. Tea and cake are always a draw, but when they come with a sewing room attached the pull is irresistible. Especially if there is an interesting machine to look at.
Look at this beauty! A Jones Family CS, which sits in the sewing parlour watching all the modern machines get on with the work. It belongs to Maria, who tells me that it used to be her grandmother's. Maria has never used a hand machine because she learnt to sew on an electric machine.
On my next trip the Cordial and Grace I will have my machine cleaning kit with me. I am looking forward to seeing Maria trying out her grandmother's machine - let's hope all goes according to plan.
If you live too far away to visit Cordial and Grace in real life, at the very least visit the website at www.cordial-and-grace.co.uk
Welcome to Kailacat! It is nice having a follower who goes on walks and comes back with photos of insects. Your dragonfly is fantastic!
