I bought a Singer today.
I named her Sally.
I'm excited to see what kind of projects she and I can come up with.
She's a beauty.
I already wound my first bobbin.
I put my orange thread in.
I'm washing my material.
Tomorrow she and I will create.
**As I was driving home from Wal-Mart tonight, I was debating on a name. I thought back to my momma (because she's the one who "taught" me [and I say that loosely...because I was a horrible student] how to sew back years ago). She has her mom's sewing machine, and it was the one I learned on. Her momma's name was Sally [I never had the privilege of meeting her], so I decided to name my new friend, Sally.
Sally and I have some "connections." She passed away on Mother's Day, May 13th, 1984. I graduated high school on Mother's Day, May 13th, 2007. I also graduated college on [Friday] May 13th, 2011. I'm pretty sure we would have been friends. She would have been an awesome grandma. I can't wait to meet her someday.**
For now, she can be a part of me through my new sewing machine.
