Salutations,  Mr. Malkin,

Some time, sir. Condolences. By this time you’ve probably figured me for the form of folk to deploy a dispatch or deux, achieve their ancillary ends then cuts bait. Afraid I’ve simply found myself otherwise consumed elsewhere and erstwhile, as it were.

Interesting news, I started applying myself to learning the ins and outs of a Necchi 523. It must be fifty years old. Quite the relic as far as appliances go. Is that categorization correct?

Can you imagine someone still using a fifty-year-old vacuum? It’d probably need a pacemaker and colostomy bag just to get across the living room to the Barcalounger. I’m confident that’s one though.

An appliance that is.

Though I can’t say setting material and thread fussing ‘feels’ founded, as long as it takes, regarding the sewing machine, to be clear, I suppose the time saved bringing a seam together does endear its usage in hindsight; albeit the intrinsic value imbued by a machine driven needle doesn’t quite pale to the merit metastasized through mastery of manipulation and means of manual manufacture.

Who knows, maybe I’m getting lazier in my own increasing age, but my time seems increasingly valuable as more of it slips away.

I suppose I’ll just have to get creative with my choice of suture and stitch to make up for the muddle.

How are things with you? Still finding time for your prison pal? This probably feels… forward to read, as yet, but if what you’ve motivated me to entertain stands as any example, I imagine they’re also deriving quite the amount of inspiration from your letters. Who would have thought I’d be driven to start ‘sewing’ of all things, and with a machine? From the ‘Sexist Stigma’ standpoint, certainly there is an admirable benefit for its utilization as a means for repair, damaged garments and the like, but to go after it as a sort of… hobby as an enthusiast… Well, my appreciation grows by the day as does my question for its definition as ‘distaff.’

I must say, I’m actually a little jealous. I’ve always wanted to be a galvanizing influence somehow. You know, perhaps say or write something someone savvied quoting? But what have I ever said that was like- inspirational or profoundly... (whatever the word for 'gives someone an epiphany' is)?

‘Epiphinal,’ I suppose?

Something like:

"A blanket is only as warm as the body beneath it."

-Brian Dykeman

Hey! How’s about that for a quality quilting quote?

Maybe it makes the monthly?

‘Warmest’ Regards,

-Brian
