they don't make them like they used to

Both my sewing machine and my overlocker have been sent away to the menders. Suffering from overuse and probably a just a bit of neglect they've packing in. Just as well then that I picked up this beauty from our local freecycle network.

I love its clunky design, and the way it feels like it would sew through anything. I decided not to put it to work immediately on the pile of purses waiting to be made but to finally do something about the ridiculous gap under our living room door - draught? more like howling gale. I mean you could slide your dinner under there.

Thanks to not martha via cool tools for this great idea. It works a treat and I'm pretty chuffed with the results.
