    Bugs or No Bugs

    would you sleep with a blanket full of Bugs ? playing with mom's kenmore 1720,, before she died, she told me it's a better machine than her 401

    I just can throw things away. So this is the scraps of the scraps of the left overs

    Wife and I like the the scraps of the scraps of the left overs blocks. Especially the second one. The colors match up nicely.

    Frankly I love butterflys... both sewn down and with loose wings.

    the butterfly's on this fabric are so pretty, I had to find something to do with them, Thats why I got out that Kenmore, she used it for making lamp shades and doll clothes, or anything with fine detailed work

    The woman was a master artist

    Thanks chris,, mom didn't do any of this, I only said taht because of that kenmore . see, I did get two of her machines, but left the kenmore because it has an internal motor, knowing that, I just figured it also was a belt timed machine so on,,, I call this type a White Box machine,
    This one motor is the very same as an external motored machine, just that it's inside kenmore 1720 aka 158.1720 , 1975 .. she liked it better than her singer 401a

    John, I guess I misunderstood. It is still beautiful work though and the butterflies really make the squares stand out.
