Time well spent

Photobucket

   Last weekend was time well spent, Mr. A. and I went to a nice village in the center of the island for a walk and find it a little better, this town caught my attention because it has many charms and a beautiful story. I was wearing my suit built here.

   The greater wealth that can have an island is undoubtedly the water, a small island hasn´t rivers where to get water, so it is limited to the springs that are located underground and rain.
   This town was built after the conquest of the island by the Spanish, about one of the largest springs on the island, and this wonderful heritage has reached today.Photobucket Photobucket  Below ground, the whole town is an intricate network of canals to bring water to all points in the photo you can see  "windows" through which the water drains, it runs all the people underground, above is the road ...Photobucket
   The village is situated at the top of the mountain, so there are wonderful views from here ...Photobucket  Photobucket

   Fun finds, I could not resist taking a picture with it ... Lovely!Photobucket

   At lunchtime, a quick meal at the fun local, a tribute to the King of  humor on black and white...

  On Sunday afternoon there wasn´t  candy or cake, instead, Mr. A. and I spent the time location of the sewing machine sewing in my cave to share space well, I am very happy with this .... Now I have everything nearby and a swivel chair between machines need only turn to one side of my back to change machine, Great!


Photobucket  A quick presentation of my "pampered girls "....

   This is my overlock machine industry, it's an "all terrain", it never has complained.

        Sewing Machine semi-industrial.
Photobucket  Second sewing machine. This is used to sew, buttonholes and decorative stitches. It'shandy when you sew a garment with two colors, so I can have a machine threaded one color and one of another color, time savings ...Photobucket  
   Overlock Second, I actually use this machine for rolled hems, for example, hem and sleeves of this dress ...
Photobucket
   Coverstitch. I sew swimwear and knitwear with it. Honestly, I have this machine since 2005, but it and I are bad friends ....

There are three machines in my cave, is this, I use it for embroidery (as did our grandmothers, lower teeth and embroidery machine with a frame, some day I will make a little video for you to look like making it embroidered with ), another sewing machine that I use to sew jeans and a machine rather than being stored for some time due to lack of space.
So my mojo is higher than ever .... And you? Could you show your "spoiled children"??

  2. That coral colour looks so good on you - and its so fitting for the summer. Gosh, I wish it was warmer here. I'm a winter person but geeee - so much cold!

    And those sewing machines of yours are great. I love their sturdy industrious look - they look like proper work-horses. I wish I had that much space for sewing!

  3. Thank-you again for the wonderful pictures of your island. Looking at them is like going on a mini trip while sitting at my computer. Of course, you look just lovely. That is a wonderful outfit!
    It was interesting to see what machines you sew with. I see the logic in having several machines. It certainly would make work go faster when working with several colours.

  4. Fabulous outfit--I love the color. Also, the set-up of your sewing room is great! I have mine set up similarly; I love swiveling from one machine to the next. It makes everything go much faster. ~ Peggy
