    I'll be right over! I love eating carrots and hummus. I'll bring the hummus. I bet your garden looks great! You have a good size garden.
    You can give the hummus to the vegetarians(DD and BF).
    :-D
    I'm allergic to garbanzo beans, but thanks for offer. Yesterday DD and I picked lots of carrots,squashes and eggplants. The tomatoes don't like this hot weather.

    I have been watching it rise this afternoon! From $932 to almost 1800.00!! This one is going to be fun to see the end of!
    It will be interesting to see how much this goes for. I just showed my husband. He is always surprised that FW can go as high as thousand. He was like WOW!

    It is fun watching the auction!

    My tomatoes haven't done very well here in N. CA; the weather has be weird, goes hot than cold. I'm only doing veggies in large garden pots this years; cutting down on water. I like eggplants, but haven't had good luck with them.

    There's several oil wicks in 301's top cover, just put a drop of oil in each one; also make sure you get a drop of oil in all the oil holes throughout the entire machine.
    I just might have to get my 301 out and see if I can get her to make a pretty stitch.

    Sharon, That's all been done. I will take the top off and sew with off it to see if I can pinpoint it even more. I hope it's just a whim of hers. I like that machine.

    They are really the last of the great ones, and will do a variety of decorative and utility stitches. If you want to do anything besides SS and ZZ, these are the ones.

And that is saying a lot considering that I do not like electric machines!

    The pattern is from the Patchabilities series. You can get them at any quilt store that sells Patchability patterns or go on line and look up Patchability. That particular pattern is called Mr Liberty or P107.

    Have fun making Uncle Sam - those Patchabilities are easy and a lot of fun!
