I have started this new thread to replace the old one which was just too full.

Here is something I'm working on.



I'm using fabric from the fabric swaps.

Thank you Nancy for the sweet compliment!

Heather, your Santa looks great! You know you could always do a solid red for the back panel and make it into a pillow and then hook a real belt around it! You are doing great with these corner to corners.

Judith and Grace - I'd be happy to be adopted LOL! I only have 2 sewing machines and one serger. And one of the sewing machines and the serger are "on loan" from my mother in law since she hasn't used them in years. None of them are vintage.

Krista - I love seeing your Harry Potter squares. Can't wait to see them all put together!

Here's the santa malfunction I mentioned a while ago:

I changed the pattern a bit - it had a white boarder all the way around it. In doing so I messed up the belt buckle and forgot to start the belt again. There were so many cut and tied pieces for the belt buckle that once I realized my mistake I wasn't going to go back and redo it!

So pretty, Krista! Your stitching is so nice and even. I love seeing such fine work. My Nanie always told me that if I was going to spend time working on a project that I had better do my absolute best work! You have definitely followed her rule!

Yesterday I finally finished another corner to corner. This one will need some fixing when I sew in the ends to make the image connect better. I can't wait for all of these to be finished.

Judith, I two had well over 2 dozen vintage machines, at one time, I sold a few, and gave a few away..

Sadly neither my daughter nor my 2 granddaughters are interested in sewing.. and I have no female cousins that are interested either..
Alas, when I go to that big crafting room in the sky, I will have to hope all my machines will be rescued by happy homes...

Judith, your sewing room is like a wonderful museum. What an amazing and interesting collections of sewing machines you have gathered! I wish I could see it all in person and learn a bit about when they were used and how they work.

OK, Judith, you win. I do have a few more than mentioned above - 2 Singer 128s, 3 singers, a Gimbel, 3 or 4 toy sewing machines, a second serger, a 3rd Singer 301, and a Brother. LOL! The 128s are both in Coffin Covers. LOL!

It all started with one handcrank machine I found at the street fair for $35. It was like Cheetos, I couldn't just have one. While I was on a three week cruise with a friend DH built the shelves and painted the room. Antique and vintage machines are fascinating and it has been fun learning about them but it is now time to part with some as my children have no interest in them. They are fun to use and I have made a dozen or so quilt tops with the handcranks and quilted several on the treadles.

Oh Judith,, I showed this photo to my hubby (of your sewing studio) He rolled his eyes and said, I could never keep mine this tidy! LOL!

I do not have a 'coffin case' cover but I do have one like your semi round cover, (rt side, middle shelf)..

It's funny, I too go back and forth between my cheapo Brother machine, my Feather Weight and my Singer 301...
It depends on what I am doing...

LOL! Maybe I can squeeze another Featherweight or 2 on one of the tables. LOL! I have 2 more featherweights, another 301, 2 128s and 2 treadles, but they won't fit in the room. Plus some other manufacturer machines.

Love the embroidery. I found my badges a while ago and have misplaced them - again. LOL!

Yesterday I worked on cleaning my crafting/quilting room so I could get to the table tops to get some work done. LOL! I'm trying to get UFOs in order, odds and ends put where they SHOULD be, and as much as I can off the floor. I got quite a bit done, but it really doesn't show much progress. Hopefully, I can get it done today so I can rearrange the sewing machine cabinets/tables already there and add in a machine/cabinet my son-in-law gave me on Tuesday. If things fit properly I will have 1 Featherweight (in its table), 2 Singer 301s(1 in its table and 1 in a cabinet), 1 Singer 302 (in a cabinet), my cutting table, and either my Janome or another newer Singer available so I can get busy. WHEW! Oh! I forgot my serger. LOL!
