My week....

I visited my sister at the weekend, 

and she had a little surprise for me!

Children's sewing machines!

The Singer is from the sixties 

and made in France;

The green one, a Japanese model!

I was thrilled to find they both work 

when battery powered!

The Singer even came with it's instruction booklet 

and spare needles!

The mailman delivered a much anticipated parcel 

this week too...

I forgot to include the lovely piece of fabric in the parcel.

from my sweet friend Mary 

Mary's equally talented daughter Molly,

made the embroidered hoop with my initial!

Isn't it beautiful?

I had a couple of hours in my sewing room 

this afternoon....

and decided my oft-used threads 

would look great in the sewing carrier!

I also did some sewing

(yes, that's a novel idea!)

Can you guess what that will become?

I hope to have a finished quilt ready to share 

with you soon too!

Happy days!

Oh what wonderful gifts :-) The embroidered S is just stunning - I aspire to be able to embroider like that :-)

You had a good week!!!! The sewing machines are so fun! Have you given them a whirl? Wonder what you are making with the foxy fabric? Is the finished quilt your modern Amish quilt? I can't wait to see that one!

Mary said...

Yay!!! That package definitely took its time! I love those itty bitty sewing machines, but I also love the boxes they came in. Hahaha! I always look forward to your quilts :)

I am sure both will sew and behave far better than my Bernina 830LE. Have fun

I'm picking that it's not a willie warmer?

Granny Maud's Girl said...

No, I cannot guess! A really long bib?
Now I have bag AND hoop envy. Sigh.
