Last time I posted about the batting I won….
today I pin basted my Peppered Cotton top….
I used the Dream Green batting and got a start on the quilting.
I am machine quilting on the singer 127 Treadle machine. I decided on machine because I have 3 other hand quilting projects going that I really need to finish before I start another ( I really will post about them soon)
I also bought another sewing machine cabinet today.
One of my early vintage machine purchases was this Elna (from about 1952-62)
It is a really fun machine, I have it tuned up and running great , I have lots of decorative stitch cams to go with it and it sews a great stitch, but I hate to sew with it. The reason is that it is too high……I prefer to have the machine flush with the sewing surface the way they are in a cabinet. Im just not a portable machine person.
The carry case for this machine does turn into a work surface like this
But it is too high off of the table for it to feel comfortable for me.
So I found a cabinet that will work. It was designed for a Viking bit with a bit of a modification the elna will fit in the space
Not bad for 26 dollars. I actually spent a lot more than that for parts to rehab the machine. I’ll be glad to be able to use it.
Teddy was more interested in his toy bone than anything I was doing today.
But he reminded me that he gets Saturdays off.
