Today I introduce you to two of my favorite tools. First is my Singer Featherweight, manufactured in 1941. I took it out of its case and gave it a thorough oiling, in preparation for a sewing lesson with Catalina tomorrow. Here is a bottom view. This little machine just purrs along and makes the most beautiful seam. Just forward & reverse, no zigzags, but the nicest straight stitch you have ever seen.
Another favorite old tool is my garlic press. I though it was lost, but it just turned up again a few days ago. So happy to see it! Hooray! There will be fresh garlic in tonight's chili, and my hands won't stink for a week, either.
