Years ago, in the dining room at my paternal grandparent's house rested a treasure, tucked underneath the window. The pedal was black, heavy metal polished clean and shiny along with the same treatment for the dark wood in which the mechanism rested. My sisters and I would sit on the floor and stare up at the grand piece, occasionally moving the pedal to see what would happen. It was my grandmother's sewing machine and oh how I treasure it now just as I did when I was little.
I have a feature up on The Project Girl's Blog on how just a bit of stitching can emphasize your design. (There's even a before picture!) I adore the extra detail stitches make and the current Young Crafter's Unite Challenge reminded me of the results you can achieve by taking the effort and an extra two minutes.
Wonderful news was just announced over at May Arts too, check it out!
