Merry Christmas

It is that time of year where I never seem to be able to find enough time to do all the things I want to do.

I bought a great new sewing machine,   Pfaff 230 and put it in the treadle to try it out.

I made a bag with it.

I have 4 more to make and I will be caught up on orders…..then I can get back to some of the many projects I have started.

Remember this one?

I finished the basic hand quilting on it and got it in the wash to take out all the marking lines and it is hanging to dry now……next I can go back and do the filling in quilting like I did in this small section.

then I’ll add trapunto and then binding.

I have an old Singer 31-15 that I plan to get working.

I got a treadle base for it today…..I need to do some modifications to that to fit the extra-large machine…..and then do a lot of work on the machine itself.   I’ll use it for larger free motion projects because it has so much space , over 10 inches between the needle and the column.

 

Teddy got dressed for Christmas.

And it has warmed up again…….it is 35 degrees now.   It wont melt all the snow but it should make for safer holiday travel.

Merry Christmas and Happy Quilting
