This is the cabinet the sewing machine comes in. It’s a treadle sewing machine. Sorry but the pic is a bit blurry.
I showed you special things I was lucky enough to receive from my Dear Old Aunt in the previous post and now I want to show you the sewing machine I was lucky enough to receive as well. Isn’t the design on it special?
This is so beautiful. It’s made in Germany which was amazing.
Another thing that amazed me was the bobbin holder and bobbin. I have never seen one like this before. The bobbin is a long skinny thing. After looking on the internet I found quite a few like it, so its not a rare thing. But mind you they aren't cheap either. EBay were selling them for around $20.00 each!
I have been playing with all my scraps too. Thanks to Joy who showed us her blocks she was making from this fabulous tutorial, by Quiltville’s® Bonnie K Hunter, I just loved the blocks and had to use up my scraps. I am really pleased with the end result.
It’s big enough for my table and that is a good thing.
I even had fun with machine quilting it with a big all over ‘swoopy, squiggly’ design.
I now have two less tubs in my sewing area as these are now empty of scraps. Gotta love that! :)
Well…..it’s now 4 sleeps before I hop in the plane and jet my way down south to Tasmania for our Stitchers weekend.
I am really looking forward to meeting some new ladies who I have been chatting to via blogs and Facebook and emails. Plus I get to spend time with 3 gorgeous ladies who are very dear to me :) I can hardly wait…..I have my pj’s packed!! Ok ok….its a start at least :)
I don’t know if I will do a blog post before I go to Tassie and so I will catch up with you all when I come back.
Hugs to all…..
