At the risk of looking ingnorant…

which by the way I am about this particular subject.  I need to know what I purchased this sewing machine foot for.  Okay, I have a tin FULL of attachments for my sewing machine and I can tell you what each one of them is for…except for this baby:

sewingmachinefoot

foot2

I don’t particularly like to admit defeat but I have spent way too much time looking online at guides this morning.  I don’t necessarily need to know right now, and after I know, I may not want to use it.  But I might!  There is no telling what kind of cool sewing I could have been doing if I had a clue what to do with this foot!! I will even BRIBE you!  The first person to successfully tell me what this is and how to use it*, will win a box of fabric!  I am cleaning out my stash and whatever I can fit/cram/jam/poke/wedge into a small P.O. flat rate box is yours!

*I don’t care if you email me, point me to a site for instructions or whatever…I NEED to know!

The Fascination Continues…

As I wait to see Julie and Julia, I have not only read the book, I just started listening to My Life in France as I do my daily walk.  This morning when I should be getting the rest of Ben’s school things together, I sat to read email and somehow, thinking about the anniversary of her death August 13, 2004, I got sidetracked looking at things about the late, great, Julia Child.  If you will click here you will be taken to her kitchen at the Smithsonian.  The website is just a treasure of information about  her.  But I think the sweetest thing I found was this patch:

It was designed by her husband Paul Child for her and two French friends who in 1952 opened a cooking school in Paris  in her kitchen.  Years later she pinned the patch to her blouse before every taping of her TV show.  I just can’t encourage you enough to visit the website.  I would love to go to DC and visit the exhibit.  What an adventure Julia’s life was – from spy to chef!
