Well, it turns out that Stuart is her sewing machine. I suppose being a Brother machine he needed a boy's name, so Stuart it became.
I got my sewing machine out - a Singer - and looked at her sadly (because I think it is a her) as she was unnamed. Aww poor little sewing machine whose owner doesn't love her enough to give her a name.
Over the last couple of days I have been thinking about a nice name for my sewing machine - yeah, honestly, I really have nothing better to do. The name that keeps popping in my head is Sally.
I keep pushing it back out again as I have a couple of friends called Sally so I really can't name my sewing machine that, can I?
But the name won't go away, so I think I will have to give in and give it to her.
Meet Sally the Singer.
