    I love them both..the first one just made me think of Cinderella, bibity bobbity boo...the pumkin changes into a carriage. The gold thread gave me that feeling. And the kitties...do you ever wonder what they think..if they do, when they stare out the windows? Great little projects. Great work and on vintage machines. Thank you for showing.

    Cute quilts! Yes, the old machines are great. I have 2 which I have been using, one a Singer 348 and the other is the first model of the Husqvarna 'computerised' machine that is about 30+ years old. They both work beautifully and I love them to bits.

    Love them and how lucky are the people you sold the machines to and the gift you gave them from that machine is so amazing. Thanks for sharing.

    great idea to do a piece with each machine that you are selling. I like the old machines and it would make me feel more comfortable seeing how well it can sew. Your little wall hangings are very cute. Great job.

    Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm for old machines. I, too, use my mother's 1950's 201 machine, and was very impressed when I used metallic thread to do some FMQ. It did a really nice job. I use it for all my sewing although I have a newer, fancier machine that is used mostly for its decorative stitches. Love my trusty old machine.

    Your work is beautiful. I need to work more with my 401A it will do a lot of things I have never tried in the 53 years I have owned it. I love looking at all the beautiful work shown here. I have got a lot ideas looking at them.
