my mother had a sewing machine like back in Yugoslavia - must of been handed over to her when my grandmother bought her electric. But my grandmother swore that clothes came out better pressed with that type of iron that the new fangled electric things.

Tash: Your grandmother was probably right, but what a lot of trouble! ;-)

Cele: It is very cool looking isn't it?

Sherry: I can't imagine going through the trouble of getting a perm back then! And, yes, it was definitely play.
