i love girl sewing the most for some reason. maybe the touch of sultriness from her vibrant stockings?

thanks for the link to darning! i'm not so good at that, myself.

Miss Marie

Oh, how lovely! This reminds me of my mum's sewing room... She has a few beautiful prints of sewing girls up on the wall in there. She took a lovely picture of me to add to her collection when I was over there mending some things a while ago - it's a dark silhouette of me against lacy curtains. Perhaps I should scan it in and share it with the blog world...?


I actually don't mind darning, and I've become the official darner of the family, with my aunt and cousins asking me to darn holes in fine cardigans. I would balk at darning socks though, unless they were hand knitted. The nice thing is, it's so satisfying when you've finished!

Miss Marie - I would love to see that photo of you that your mother took.

Piroska - I think it may become addictive once I start, but its the starting that is the issue. Im sure I will feel mighty satisfied when I finish!
