Out and about

Look at this Singer sewing machine. When I was small Gran had one of these sewing machines it even had the same wooden case. Lift the machine up a bit and it reveals a storage area.

It was a heavy old thing but simple to thread and you wound the handle on the right to sew. The faster you wound the handle the faster you stitched. Viewing it as a child it was like magic. Gran made lots of cloths and toys when we were growing up, many were special orders. I don't have many photo's of gran so I'm going to put the photo on a scrapbook page about her.
