The skies are dark and the snow flakes have been falling today with a strong cold north wind ,winter has arrived so what is a girl to do but spend some time in the sewing room . I had a plan to work on a small project today and needed to find some zippers and was not successful in my sewing room so off to the spare bedroom I go as that was once the sewing room and it still has a closet full of sewing related stuff ;-) I did not find any suitable zippers BUT I did find these long forgotten blocks.
I also found these flower pounded pieces that were done at this same retreat or just after I got home and were my first ever attempts at this process .
Now my dear sweet hubby surprised me on Friday with a new to me sewing machine , I don't know if you are aware that I love vintage sewing machines and when he lifted the lid on this baby my heart beat a few extra beats. What a gem it is and in very good condition , needs a little cleaning up but the bed is not scratched and I am told it works although I have not tried it out as of yet.
Oh and I have sewn the runner together and have the quilting done and the binding sewn on but I need to sew that down on the back then I will share a photo with you , it is ok, maybe not great but I enjoyed the process so that counts for something I guess :-) I am off now to do a little stitching , hope you are enjoying your day doing what you love most.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day.
