Straight Sewing and Cutting

Nearly done!!
The Little Bookworm   AS&E Issue 91

This has been a WIP over the summer. It really should have been completed by now, I have only striaght sewing to do.  Side seams, sashes to be sewn into the said side seams, an enclosed fold hem easily and quickly sewn to finish the dress.

Selvedge shows the choice of fabric used.

Buttons to be covered and sewn on, buttonholes to be also sewn.

I have been helping with some other cutting instead.

Straight cutting with this new implement.

Mr 5BN has just purchased this to replace the same model he has had and used extensively for the last 18 years.  He was surprised to see - little had been altered on the chainsaw in the 18 years!   Hmm the same can't be said for our sewing machines!

More cutting with the wood splitter.

A most wonderful invention, the men can use the chainsaws  ( yes plural!)
Us girls can operate the wood splitter, a fine amount of cutting and splitting can be achieved here -- but not much straight sewing in the house!

Keep cutting and splitting!! Will fill the back of the ute and bring this home ready to use this winter.

Hope you are all keeping warm in your part of the world!
