    Dsc_0099_listing

    Not a sewing project per-se, more an upholstery fumble. But sewing related, so it might be of interest….

    I was given this old sewing box (see the last picture), but the inside was all falling …

    Dsc_0102_listing

    I am a huge music fan, but I shant go into that now, but weirdly enough (and I’m not a metal/industrial fan at all) I love sewing to Nine Inch Nails. I find it makes me more productive, and I seem …
