I don't have a large enough space to spread this out properly and on the bed you can't see it all so the floor it is 😊 This quilt is the Craftsy bom for 2016 designed by Lynette Jensen. I enjoyed making this quilt even if there was a ton of work .
I have also added to my vintage sewing machine collection recently, did I tell you I love vintage machines , well if I didn't i am now lol . This machine is in near pristine condition and the young lady selling it said it was her grandmother's and I couldn't help but think the day will come when she will regret selling this beautiful machine but she is moving out west and can't take everything with her . This Singer 401 does multiple decorative stitches and a perfect straight stitch. I have tried it out and just the sound makes me smile . So tell me what do you think of it ?
This machine has a slant needle which makes it easier to see what you are stitching, nice feature and I learned it was the top of the line machine at that time around 1957 -1958 . Now my dear hubby also brought home another machine but it will never sew anything again , it is simply decorative as it is rough shape and missing parts .
Meet Raymond, the older brother to Ruby I showed you a while back , they will keep each to her company on the old church bench .
I want to thank everyone who signed up for the postcard exchange , there was a great response and I hope by now most postcards are in the mail or in the making . Please be sure to share your postcards when they arrive and also on the flicker page at the top right side of this blog page .
Oh before I go I will share the last three blocks I made for the splendid sampler.
All caught up until Sunday , what a nice feeling .
Enjoy your day and thanks so much for taking the time to stop by .
