Well here I am on Blogger!
I had huge problems with commenting and formatting on my old blog (www.rellus.com/Emily) so with the considerable help of Nicola - Thank you! I will start again here.
Emily is the sewing machine that I inherited from my great grandmother Margaret Lavender, she is not at all valuable but I am very attached to her and she still sews a beautiful straight stitch!
She was manufactured by Singer in Kilbowie, Scotland between Jan & Jun 1901.
We moved to our current home last August and spent a considerable amount of time renovating it! The estate agent who showed us around enthusiastically pointed out the study that I now use as a sewing room, it is a very small room just off the dinning room, more of a large cupboard really! This is where Emily lives, hence the blog name Emily's Cupboard.
While the renovations were being carried out, I spent a lot of time with catalogues from the Holding Company and Ikea, trying to fit as much storage as possible into the room. I am happy with my space and spend a lot of time in here with the company of the radio or audio books.
There is even room for a friend to visit!
