Sewing



Today's picture shows a Crow Indian family inside a Tipi. The picture was taken in 1906 in Montana. The woman has a sewing machine, and her entire family looks well dressed.

Well, the nonsense coming out of the Evil Nate Maas continues to escalate, with him going so far as to put spam links to his site in the comments yesterday. He also has drug the lovely Miss EAM into the feud by posting some of our private Christmas Card photographs. He appears to be successfully turning a few weak willed OPOD followers over to the dark side. Will he stop at nothing in his attempts to destroy me? The sisters Grime have remained strangely silent this time around.

    3. OK, you won me over.

      Funny nobody has remarked on the beautifully beaded hanging piece by the front entrance. I would bet that it took many, many hours to piece together.

      That really doesn't look like a teepee, there is no slant to the walls. It looks more like some kind of make-shift protection.

  2. As a seamstress I am not surprised they would adopt the new technology quickly
    ..it would be a huge time/labor saver.

  3. PJM, what's with the picture of the girl with unzipped jeans on your home page. Doesn't fit with the old fashioned tone of the opod site.

    1. Google chooses the advertisements to show, and everyone sees different ads. Google shows ads it thinks particular viewers would be interested in.

    2. Hi PJM,

      Well, if Google says that this is the kind of ad I want to see, I have to say that my web browsing experience does not lead to that kind of assumption on their part. I can appreciate that you want some income from click-through ads. I just want you to be aware of the kind of pictures they are putting up on your site. To be honest, this sort of thing is why I never used advertising on my own web site.

  4. Kids are kids whatever the time period -They can't sit still. The old cameras had excessive exposure time and the children's faces got blurred out while the shot took because they were looking around.

  5. What surprised me was that the two ladies sitting at the sewing machines are both pictured from the back.

  6. And it looks like the gal is sitting on a crate to get the job done. Not very ergonomic.

  8. PJM, I can't believe this is happening on one of my favorite links to look at on a daily bases. There's a group on FB I'm on and we're going thru the same thing with a person who is trying to destroy a great page we have. I'm going to suggest you do the same thing we're doing on FB and that's to stop giving this person the attention they are so looking for. So sad when a person's life it going so bad that they have to try and make everyone's as unhappy as their's is.

    2. What you have to understand is that this is all being done in fun.

  9. It is a lesser sewing machine that a few days ago. Both singers, but the previous was a three drawer on the right machine.

  10. I agree with anonymous above... this is all done in fun. The domestic updates (which we haven't seen in a long time), are as interesting as the old pictures.

    I think the proper thing for Mr. PJM to do is run a week of domestic updates, starting with the peacocks!

  11. A sewing machine that works well is indeed a blessing.

    I bought fabric, patterns, etc, today, to make Christmas dresses for my daughters and granddaughters.

    I would hate to have to sew them by hand.

  12. My sources deep inside West Texas have just informed me that we all need to steel ourselves for the worst regarding Chickie Town.

    1. That may go along with a report of a Chick-Fil-A truck seen sneaking out of Christoval in the wee hours of the morning a week ago
