    If I've already put pictures of a machine up on this thread, should I also put them on the picture thread? Spending a lot of quality time on the couch, as my surgically enhance foot is healing....seemed like as good a time as any to upload photos.... When I dumped off a bag at Goodwill this morning, I noticed a cute little brown crinkle finish VS with no name, but a New Home looking foot set up. Three things kept me from buying it: I can't carry it on crutches, it didn't have it's shuttle, and it was in a cabinet with a knee bar, so I'd have to totally re-wire it to a foot pedal. Now, of course, I'm wondering if it is still there, sadly waiting for rescue....Laura

    Hi Laura, What kind of surgery did you have done on your foot?

    Janice I love the new A G Mason, New Glenwood, machine! How cute! Look at the back of the bed? It is rounded off! I wonder how old that machine is? It is a very different looking machine - I don't remember seeing another machine with a bed like that?

    Hazelnut, I love all your machines, even the yellow and tan Brother!

    Talking about research, I have been researching on bra making. Has anyone made their own bras?

    I hate the padded bras since I find them uncomfortable and hot...and really hot and sweaty when having hot flashes.

    I'm broad chested, but not well-endowed, 38A...and Cooper's droop is settling in(old age).
    Since the bra companies like to make bra cup sizes for the more fully figured ladies that are 38s and above, I'm having a difficult time finding a cup that fits.


    I'm laughing at myself right now; I just confused to what I have been researching. You now know that I'm really nuts since I want to make my own bra. I have also been thinking of designs. There has got to be a better way of making a bra that works in lift and is comfy too.

    And yes, this bra will be made with a vintage sewing machine!

    My big toe was frozen from a bone spur. which made me walk on the outside of my foot, which caused a stress fracture and a sprained ankle, and a partridge in a pear tree...now my big toe is un-frozen, and in the ouchie physical therapy phase of recovery. Somehow I thought 5 weeks off work would be more fun! But it looks like the surgery was the right decision, things are getting better! Laura

    I think there was a Threads article on making your own bra. I have also read about taking one that fits well apart, and using that as your pattern, and also recycling the "hardware" from the bra. Have you considered a sports type bra? I have heard that they are pretty comfortable for the A-C cup crowd. Which I am not in, unfortunately. My bra's remind me more of a suspension bridge than anything else Laura

    My 1915 AG Mason "Golden Star" looks mighty like the New Glenwood. Mine came in a beautiful cabinet, that I haven't had time to restore yet. Check her out.

    OUCH! That's not nice. Hopefully you have a speedy recovery! Feet pain is no fun.
