I lived on a farm until I was 11, and my Grandma Leah lived just up the road. She has a craft room in her basement that we all loved to snoop through as we were growing up. She let me go through her stash and pick out all the fabric for this patchwork pillow, and I remember avoiding finishing it for years because I had somehow messed up the ruffle the first time around. I guess some things never change :).
In the background is the old Singer that my Mom used for years and years. She even got a new machine at one point and kept using the old one instead until a few years ago. I loved that machine, I used it for everything too until I got my own when I was older.
I’m not even going to make fun of myself this time for how I look. I’m just happy that this picture wasn’t taken during one of my “bangs” phases which pretty much consisted of my whole growing up life. A person with Symetrical OCD (that’s what I call how I can’t stand things that are un-symetrical) should never have bangs. It’s just not a good idea. Maybe I’ll let you see what I mean one of these Flashback Friday’s coming up.
