This is one of my absolute favorite feet for my sewing machine. It is an edge stitch foot. I use it for so many things. For example, I use it for edge stitching, top stitching, stitching in the ditch, attaching lace to lace, etc.....the list goes on.
Image my surprise when I could not locate this wonderful foot of mine the other day when I needed it. Emily helped me look...but it could not be found anywhere near my sewing machine. Over the weekend I realized I had not accidentally misplaced it but rather a certain three year old in this house had "relocated" it somewhere for me. He has a tendency to "collect" particular items that interest him. The "collections" can usually be found behind a chair, behind his bedroom door, under his bed, etc. You get the idea. Anyway, everyone of us turned this house upside down searching for this presser foot over the last two days.
I attended a class last night at our local heirloom shop and it was all I could do to resist the temptation of purchasing another one. Especially since she was offering a 20% discount on all purchases. (Just so you know....I actually bought nothing last night!) But I was determined to look longer and harder.
It was pure coincidence that 10 minutes after I returned home last night, Emily sat down at the computer and felt something lumpy in the computer chair. She started feeling around and in a tiny pocket in the cushion what should she find????? My #10 Edge stitch foot, of course. I think I owe her something really awesome now!!! I was so thrilled!!! And now I can get started on the pile of fabrics located next to my sewing machine. If I don't hurry they may disappear on me too!!!!
