  1. Vintage Domestic Sewing Machine, Model 801

    by , 11-26-2011 at 07:06 PM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    I lifted the head of the sewing machine out of the cabinet and found the model number and serial number for the machine. This is the machine my DD inherited from her Grandmother. DD did not have anywhere to store it so I told her I would keep it at my house for her. It's a lovely machine and seems to run great. Tomorrow I will give her a good wipe down (she's quite dusty and grimy) and see how well she stitches. DD named her after her grandmother, Carolina. I'll post a picture in my sewing ...

  2. Sewing Christmas Gifts.

    by , 11-26-2011 at 12:38 PM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    I finally started sewing the potholders I'm making for Christmas gifts. I assembled 12 potholder tops this morning. I have 3 more to make. I'm giving away one to each of my 7 co-workers and one to each of my bosses' wifes, a couple to each of brother, and one set for me. I just have to cut the backs out, the insul-brite and I have the cotton batting on order. I will get the cotton batting in about 9 days.

    I have to cast on to knit one more dishcloth, and they will all be done. ...

  3. Cotton Thread Shortage?

    I thought I would do some on-line shopping before Black Friday and get some more cotton thread for my collection. I just started using the cotton thread since I started quilting and my Bernina 1530 loves this brand of thread and I love my Bernina 1530, so it's all good. Until I started quilting I only had polyester thread in my collection and some of it is a little on the old side. Anyway, my favorite on-line retailer for thread was sold out of two of the shades of blue that I wanted, bummer. ...

  4. Saturday Errands Done and My Singer 301 is at Home

    by , 11-19-2011 at 12:00 PM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    I went out around 9:00 a.m. this morning. Went to JoAnn's to get fabric for the binding on the Christmas Cat Wall Hanging/Door Decoration (used some coupons and saved more than I spent with all the markdowns on the fleece I bought), then I went to the Bernina Sewing Connection to pick up my Singer 301 that was in for a tune-up and wire check. Did my grocery shopping and got home just in time for lunch.

    I'm ready to go into the sewing room and try to make a fleece scarf boa like ...
