Well, you’ll just have to wait until Monday to find out what.

Let’s just say it’s pretty cool.
And I did it all by myself.

I think you’ll surprise yourself.

I really did.

And I know my Grandma would have been proud.

This was her sewing machine. The very one with which she repaired my Grandpa’s work pants in the 60’s, my Dad’s school shirts in the 70’s, and even my little baby clothes in the 80’s.
I love you, Grandma. And I miss you still.
