I Love my Husqvarna

Yes, it is true. I am having a hot and steamy secret love affair - with my sewing machine!

Of course, this does not mean I love David any less, how could I? "He da man!" (pretty much, pretty much). And there is no law written that a happily married woman must not love her trusted sewing machine dearly.

What an absolute treasure my old sewing machine is, and oh so lovely. A much-loved well-worn relic, it always works like a smooth charm whenever I feel brave enough to venture near it. I'm not sure why I don't use it more often, this wonderful refined beast intimidates me with its perfectness. It simply purrs as it glides the seams all my itself, all I have to do is turn it on! But so patiently it waits for me, never pesters me for attention. Just is always there for me when I need it.

And just like a good friend, if I'm making a mistake sewing something the wrong way around, it Knows it isn't the sewing machines fault. So it says nothing, and just keeps sewing, trusting I will see my own error sooner or later. My sewing machine ain't gonna tell me I'm wrong and remains silent. I've known people like that!

This machine came to me second hand by a friend of my mother who I believe didn't use it much, and I didn't realise straight away just how precious this thing truly is.  It's had two services so far, one in Darwin and one in Brisbane, I should try and find someone I trust here on the south side to do it, but I'm a bit nervous about that! We all know how I have 'trust issues'! How I would be lost without my Husqvarna, no other could possibly replace it.

Oh, I love my sewing machine!


  1. I really wish I had "friendship" with my machine let alone a love affair! LOL I am pretty much meant NOT to sew and I learned that early on. Glad you "love" your machine because I am always admiring those that can sew beautiful items.

  2. Hi Teena, thanks for popping over to my blog and leaving such lovely comments.
    I too envy your 'friendship' with your machine;my relationship with mine is very rocky.So much so that I often have to go and sulk and stitch by hand instead LOL xxx
