It took me all day to come up with an idea for “machine.” Finally, I searched my “go-to” space for finding great photos: Flickr Commons.
I found a great image of a sketch of an old Singer sewing machine, which I used for my model for my “machine.”
I love the image because my first sewing machine — for sewing Girl Scout handkerchiefs and projects before I started sewing my own clothes– was a “pedal” sewing machine! My feet powered the machine! Like this one I just found on Flickr Commons.
And, of course, then my aunt Viola, who spoiled me and her sister, my mom, got us an Elna sewing machine — a portable, electric, Zig-Zag, desktop sewing machinge [picture here].

That sewing machine served my needs from about age ten to age twenty-five! …. maybe I’ll find some old pictures of the dresses, skirts, and slacks that I sewed myself.
So today’s March Doodle was a walk down memory lane– I hope you enjoyed it.
