Welcome to Sewing Week here at OPOD. We are going to be looking at what is becoming a Lost Art . . . the art of sewing. Back in the day, women took pride in their sewing skills, but now almost no one sews. The lovely Mrs. PJM was quiet the seamstress back in the day, but even she does not sew any more. I think that there are two reasons. One is that we are all pressed for time more than ever before, and the second reason is that it is cheaper now to buy clothes than to make them. By the time you add up the material, buttons, zippers, thread and all that, you can just about buy the clothes already made cheaper.
OK, I am sorry I did not post yesterday but was completely exhausted after the successful space probe mission on Friday. The probe made it to 119,000 feet, returned to earth, and was successfully retrieved. This is a short video clip of the probe reaching its peak altitude and then beginning its descent back to earth. Pretty good work, I think, for a handful of country boys.
