Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane of Spain Daily, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. If you'd like to join in, please leave a link to your Corner View post in the comments below, and be sure to visit other participants too.
Many thanks to Anna for the theme today!
One sad day my trusted Swiss Elna sewing machine from the 1950s didn't turn on. I did all the right things: I turned it off and on again, oiled it some more, and then looked at it quizzically. It still wouldn't start.
Something inside the old cable had broken, I soon realized, and because that specific kind of cable with that specific type of attachment isn't available any longer, I "fixed" it by building a little tower of thread spools just the right height, to prop the cable at just the right angle, so that the electricity could now flow to the sewing machine. It sort of worked for brief spells, with regular tapping and rearranging of the spool tower.
My mom came to the rescue - as she always does - and lent me her new-ish Bernina sewing machine. For the first time ever, I sewed with non-vintage sewing machine. What a magnificent machine, and what perfect finishing stitches! It's a temporary replacement, but one that I'm making the most of at the moment.
The theme next week is "inner child", and comes from Anna. It will be our last Corner View before summer break.
Happy Corner Viewing!
