It is amazing how the littlest things can improve life so much. I had been using painters tape stuck to the needle plate of my Singer 15-91 sewing machine to measure my seam allowances. I poking around I found that you could buy a replacement needle plate for my machine that had seam allowances already marked on it. I promptly bought one for cheap off the internet and took at the results. I think it looks so much better.
Happy 4th of July !
