more than a drawer





















































Today it properly rained and the determined winds blew me into the local op shops.
The blue of the knitting needles attracted me immediately, and just because they aren't the same colour or even the same length doesn't mean I can't love them anyway. I also scored some fabric, mostly a bunch of upholstery samples for 20cents, a well-read version of Oliver Twist, and a brand new pair of grey school-boy pants for 3 dollars. Bargain, I know.

I saw her then. It took some testing, some discussion, some research and the eating of a sopressa roll, but I decided to buy her as an early birthday present to myself. The drawer in the third photo belongs to a table that holds my Singer 201k treadle operated sewing machine. She will be delivered on Monday, I am very happy, I will show and tell when she arrives. Thank you Mr op-shop, I hope her price-tag goes to good use.

ooooh.. You're so lucky for getting yourself a sewing machine. I think if I got a sewing machine then I would have to move to a bigger place cause that would be the floodgates to my other desires.

You lucky girl. Does it work? Will you use it? And those trinkets in the drawers. A lucky strike.

Katie yes it does work and I will use it. Looking forward to using it for more intricate things that my electric one is just too fast for.
