Hot off the sewing machine..........

A fabric collage made in exchange for a beautiful sewing machine I got off freecycle. The machine had belonged to the Lady in the collage her name was Alice Frances Kinder and she had been a dressmaker all her life. I made this for her son who was parting with the machine but it obviously held precious memories for him he said he remembered turning the hand wheel while his Mother sewed. She lived past her nineties and continued sewing all through her life.
