Automation

I’m not normally a viewer of shopping channels but, I was off sick today and channel surfing and happened to spot one of the shopping channels was featuring a sewing machine. The make was [Brother](http://www.brothermachines.com/show_product.asp?id=408) and it not only automatically threaded itself, but also had no pedal – you could set it going and go put the kettle on (if you’re doing straight lines), and I sat watching just thinking isn’t that cheating?
I’m not quite sure why I felt like that or how much automation would be ok!? I’m not sure I’d feel the same if it was a machine to clean the kitchen floor(!) I guess it’s because I love the traditional feeling that I associate with sewing and producing my own skirt/bag..

  1. Not normally a viewer of shopping channels eh? I seem to remember some good student times watching QVC…. Anyway, I just went on the Black Apple site and it was great!!!! See you soon and keep up with the blogging. I’ve just read a brilliant book about a cooking blog that I need to lend you. J x
