My sewing machine is ready to be picked up from the shop today. I have not missed it since it’s a finicky thing and has given me more fits than any sewing machine I’ve ever owned but at least it was really expensive.

Lesson learned. 

I have a cheap little work horse that does what needs doing.

This is my Scarlet O’Hara coat, or my Gone With the Wind Coat  fashioned from a bolt of upholstery fabric scored at the Goodwill. It also made some very groovy curtains.


  1. My one and only sewing machine EVER has been a little old Singer. That's my baby.
    My friend Kathleen and I were in the Goodwill today and she bought some nice upholstery fabric but I do not think she's planning on making a coat out of them. After I show her yours though, she may.


  2. So whimsical, so birdie-sweet with a touch of sophistication! better than Anthropologie could ever offer. agree~beautifully photographed. love it. thanks for sharing. allene


  3. love those colors – that is one of your gifts – your sensibility about colors. I love the photo on the top of your blog – central coast?
