An alternate use for the sewing machine! I was trying to figure out how to make miniature books! Most of the common wisdow says the spine needs to be sewn or glued. Why not sewn by machine instead of hand? So here is the work of several hours time, cutting and folding, then a few minutes time sewing! LOTS of fun at this stage! The book that seems overly long is actually two books, and the "miracle" of lighting makes it seem (and the fact that there is perhaps 1/2 a stitch between them). All of the books are bright white. My sewing "table" is a bright blue short filing cabinet and a dresser that had been Terrors, then Serenas. They support a laminated board which holds the sewing machine. Primitive, but it works.
