Accumulated quilt stuff

Lately I have been in the mood to start going through my quilt room as well as my 2nd bedroom where I store some of my  quilt stuff, but mostly yarn, to get more of an idea of what I have.  I don't know whether to feel happy that I probably don't need to buy anything other than thread, batting  and stabilizer (for my embroidery machine) for the next several  years or guilty because I have so much stuff!  I found kits I had forgotten I even had.  That makes me feel guilty.  

I did get…

tannenbaum table runner

Been working on this since February, I believe. Just finished it. I hand quilted the straight lines; the wavy lines within the tree branches are by machine.

Happy Mother's Day

This year Mother's Day is going to be very different for a lot of us.  Never thought I would see the day that the entire world would be suffering from such a horrible pandemic!  Since I can't spend the day with my daughter & her family, I am going to spend the majority of it in my sewing room.

Out of Fabric...

I delivered the last of the face masks to the food bank this morning. I made 421! I absolutely ran out of fabric! It feels great to clear out some bins for a good cause. We opened the lake house this past weekend. Our weather has been crazy cold for this time of the year! Mother's Day will be quiet...too cold for a driveway visit! will have to zoom it. Wishing all a wonderful Mother's Day. Stay safe...but, get out there and take our life back.…

Face masks

I took another 100 face masks to the med center today. I think I will move on to something else, also. This is my 3rd week off work, I go back Monday. I wouldn't mind another week off, but I am so thankful I have a job to go back to.

Latest Vintage Save

I bought these four 1940s Colonial Ladies blocks at a flea market last summer. They were hand appliquéd, just lovely. I machine pieced the setting and hand quilted it. A cheery project for these difficult times.

Seeking Princess Sewing Machine info

Does anyone know anything about this machine?  I can find NOTHING about it on the internet so far.  It is selling on a local on-line auction.  I'm assuming it is a working toy machine circa 1950's, possibly?  When we looked at the listing  yesterday, the bidding was at $140.  I'm not interested in buying it, but I am intrigued by it and that fact that I can't seem to find any history or information about it.  It has a crank handle, but it also looks like there is a belt on it as well.  Maybe…

Progress in a confined space

As many of you know I’ve been living in a RV which of course means very confined space.   I have finally worked out a way to work on my quilts.  This is the the last of 3 blocks to make before I can piece the quilt top together.
