|Ear attachment on tie dye stick horse ( see her finished on Etsy )|
Christmas orders are getting started and I’m sewing horses almost every day now.
Tuesdays are my most productive days (hence the title) as that is my day off from my 8:30-5 job.
I will spend almost the whole day sewing!
(thank goodness my daughter Heather loves to cook otherwise we’d starve!)
Tuesdays are the days I usually add new colors to the lineup~ if I don’t have any orders for that day.
I really love seeing a flat piece of fabric come alive into a new horse as I cut it out and put it together.
Then I get to name them am create a little bio for them.
The whole process is a lot of fun!
And here is the magic horse machine!
It’s an old circa 1960’s Singer that I bought at a garage sale several years ago for a whooping $25.00!
We keep it maintained and it runs smoothly (a little minor tweaking now and then).
I hope we can keep it going forever because nothing is built to last like these old machines!
It still has metal gears inside.
I have a fetish for old sewing machines and pick them up whenever I find them….
You should see my collection ~ but that’s a whole other blog post!
I’d love to have you visit my Etsy shop!
or come see me at my FaceBook and leave a comment or two!
