It's the feast of Saint Nicholas of Myra. For fun this morning, I put this picture up on my Facebook news feed. It sent some to Google, and elicited a wink and a nod from others whose classical religious education is similar to mine. Where do you fall on that spectrum? (0 likes)

Tinkering: posted on Dec 5, 2:42 pm by Christina (Desert Agave) - 5 entries
I’m making some plans for this coming week, some tinkering plans. My Singer 221 got kind of clanky by the end of my jacket project. Clearly it needs some spa time, with a good cleaning and oiling. Then I’ll clean and oil the Singer 66, which will be fun as I have yet to do anything to the machine but admire it. (1 like)

Early Morning: posted on Dec 3, 10:50 am by Christina (Desert Agave) - 5 entries
In the past year, I seem to have lost my ability to sleep in. It isn’t a big deal. I can still get to sleep at night, and sleep through the night, but once morning hits, I’m awake, even if it is 5:00 a.m. This is a little ironic because my baby and then kid used to rise at 5:00 every day, and I complained about it mightily.

Beautiful Machines: posted on Dec 2, 12:10 pm by Christina (Desert Agave) - 5 entries
I've become a little obsessed with vintage sewing machines. I love them. There are sewing machines out there covered in gorgeous decals that are 100 years old and yet STILL WORK. They are simple enough that a regular person armed with a screwdriver and some high-quality sewing machine oil can take care of them and keep them running. And the machines were mass produced enough, and are unpopular enough, that many can be purchased for not that much money. (0 likes)

I’ve been trying to sew myself a linen jacket. I’ve also been trying to learn to sew in little 1-3 hour chunks of time, instead of completing a garment in a four-day marathon. It is hard to find three to four days where all you can do is sew, so I figured I’d better learn how to fit the activity into my life in a different way. The result has been that I’ve now been working on this jacket for over a month. It is the project that will never end. (1 like)
