    Advice about sewing from 1948

    image.jpg
    I got a kick out of this. I can't imagine worrying if my husband caught me without makeup!! Poor, sweet man is always pleasantly surprised if I even remember to cook let alone fix my hair.

    I live by that. NOT
    Since you're always on my mind can you straighten out the mess up there?

          I don't really see myself in a clean dress or lipstick and make up. I also subscribe to the theory that a clean house is a sign of mental illness. But I'm sure there was a time that was how it was. I can remember my grandmother wouldn't go next door to the neighbors without putting on her Sunday best.

              Hahahahaha, I'm sure there was some point to all that at one time, maybe it was considered to be a more civilized world back then. I never would have 'fit in' that's for sure!

                Interesting thoughts about sewing. I do have to say that I do know ladies who always made sure that their house was in order before sewing. I know of a couple ladies who no matter what even when sick would get up and put on their makeup and get dressed for the day.

                Me, on the other hand, would rather be sewing than cleaning house. (I do clean the house, just wishing I was sewing instead.) I do have to wonder about all those pieces of fabric and threads on their outfits. The other night my husband came home to find the living room and me both covered in minky from working on a minky rag quilt.

                Ladies back then did seem to have such style and grace.

                        That is funny stuff...make up I rarely use unless its a special occasion, some days I too do not brush my hair and stay in my jammies sewing all day... Housework it can wait for sure.

                          hahahahahahaha - ok, I admit I DO TRY to have the house somewhat in order before I sew; only because it gets out of hand so easily if I don't (at least the dishes ) but seeing as much of my sewing is done at night right now - comfy clothes or jammies is definitely my 'sewing wardrobe'

                            My urgent cleaning chores are swishing away in my dishwasher right now.

                            Next a big load of towels will be swishing away in the washing machine while I sew upstairs for a few hours. Will take a break from sitting too long while sewing and stretch my legs while I straighten up the upstairs bedrooms as DS#3 and kids will be here this weekend, hence the need for more towels. But then it will be back to sewing so if DH doesn't pull up the bedcovers, that's OK as bed will be ready for his afternoon nap.

                              So totally not me. My husband sees me in the morning when I weak up so he knows what I look like w/o make-up and my hair, ugh. Any drop in guests know what I look like in the morning because my dh & neighbors are one in- laws. The men leave for fishing trips while it's still dark. So needles to say.....I am what I am.
