Another Passion of Mine..

Besides antiques and decorating I have a passion for sewing.
Quilting to be exact.
While out antiquing last year @ Lakefield I came accross the crem de-la-crem of sewing machines.
Singer Featherweight. This little baby is dated 1947.
I was soooo excited. The case was in perfect condition with all the bells and whistles.
Couldn't wait to get it home and give it a test run.
A little cleaning and setting the tension and I was ready to sew.

Now I guess you would like to see some quilts? or a tour of my studio.
The door is open,

 Hutch holds my fabriccraft station/booksbulletin boardwindow wallopposite wall, here is where my quilting frame sits
who'da thought a tool caddy could be used for embroidery threads, yes another passion of mine. If you look closely at the rug on the floor, yes I also rug hook.
I'm going to share my quilts another day,
enjoy your tour!!

  2. Awesome little Featherweight! I love them, and their big sisters, the 301. Have fun with her!

  3. Hi Linda, what wonderful projects! I love the red and white Bulletin Board too. Not sure if you know you can size your photos, when you upload them, you can click on large or extra large to make it easier for viewers. Welcome to the blogging world, tami

  4. Hi Linda! Wow what a great space to create in and what a wonderful treasure you found in that little sewing machine! I'm looking forward to seeing your quilts and your rugs...oh to be so talented!! I hope you have a wonderful day.
