I wanted to introduce you to "Elizabeth", Lizzy for short :)
She is the newest addition to our household
and I am totally in love with her already!
She is a Singer Featherweight from the early 1900's.
She has the most beautiful stitch quality
and she's so cute!!!
insane wonderful friend Gena
wanted to swap this beauty for a quilt that I will make for her.
Yes....I do have the VERY BEST FRIENDS!
Look at that gorgeous face plate!!!
Isn't she lovely?
I did finally finish up the table topper
that I pieced 2 years ago
during the After Christmas Sew Along.
It's so wonderful to have it finished up :)
I backed it in red and white polka dots.
Please try not to be surprised :)
And I also wanted to show you my other beauty
that has joined my sewing room lately.
She is a model 127 Singer 3/4 size.
Her name is "Margaret", Maggie for short :)
She was born on July 3, 1923 according to
The wooden carrying case is gorgeous too.
Can you believe I bought her for $32.00?
I know right?
The hubs pointed her out at an antique store
in San Juan Capistrano on a recent motorcycle trip.
I snatched her right up!!!
He wanted me to carry her on the motorcycle all the way home.
that didn't happen.
So we drove back the next day
in the suburban and picked her up.
These old machines are artwork.
The fact that they still work is a testimony
to old school workmanship.
They just don't build 'em like they used to folks :)
So now on to the sew along.
How is everyone doing?
I've seen some great projects over at the flickr group already!
Make sure to stop by the group and share some love :)
Even if you don't have pics to share just yet
please leave a comment today so I know
I'm not all alone over here!
Have a great day!!!
