    Cool

    1948 Singer 128 up Oooooohhh do we get a picture of your new beauty too.

    I really like vintage machines and do pretty much all my piecing/applique on them. (Bernina 830 vintage and "white" Feather Weight. I have several other or better lots of others and each of my other family members have their favorites. I now use my Janome 6500 (modern extended throat) mostly for quilting small quilts or fancy stitches. I am also learning to long arm and do donation quilts for hospice and Vietnam vets for another person who pieces them and hands them out. this is a wonderful arrangement as I love doing donation quilts but cost became prohibitive. She has people donate to her so she provides the needed materials/top and I quilt. she was just diagnosed with carpal tunnel so this helps her too. OK I am rambling. LOL So good to be back.

    Here she is with her face all washed. I am just doing the happy dance listening to her clackety-clackety-clacking away. Dh just smiles and nods at me when I for the umpteenth time in two days tell him how excited I am to finally have her up and running.

    We picked her up sometime late last year for a mere $21 + tax. She was in a booth at one of the local antique barns we frequent. Saw her several times but always walked passed her. On this particular day, everything in the dealer's booth over $10 was 50% off; couldn't leave her there that day :-) And my dh is an enabler, too!

    You can't see in the picture, but right behind her is sitting my modern machine - Yep, Anna, one more thing we have in common, a Janome 6500.

    We actually have several old gals here, a 1882 Davis LAVF, a Willcox & Gibbs, 1925 128 with La Vencendora decals, a 1910 66 Lotus decals, 1920 66 Red Eye, ?1910 27 Sphinx, and a 1913 White Rotary. That doesn't count the beauties I had but sold, Goodrich B, Favorite (she was a pretty fiddle base), a couple of Red Eyes, and a 66 Tiffany. Plus, I gave away an old New Home with Mother of pearl.

    So, you wanna come play?

    best,

    Since you have the machines, we just need to bring our fabric and thread right? I am on my way now. Skip the wedding this weekend, sewing retreat at Whigrose's house.

    I am so excited about your row Whigrose, I have ideas popping in my head that I have to write them down so they aren't forgotten since I can't work on it yet. DH is helping me think of some good ones as well. Now I am hoping that I don't do to many things on yours that I do nto leave any fun for Anna.

    So Whigrose, you need to come over to my house and help me restore the Singer my mom got me for my birthday two years ago so I can start sewing with it and put my other sewing desk upstairs in the spare room and get my sewing room started there. You seem to be great at organizing those crafty places. I promise to clean up regularly.

    Do I want to come and play? Ofcourse. Now how much fun would that be? I also want to play or watch Beth on her long arm. How far apart do the two of you live? LOL

    You can swing by my house first Anna, we can play on longarm for a day, I have five of my own quilts to get done, then we can take off to Deb's house across the country. ROAD TRIP!!!!!!

    I think I have bothered Deb so much these last couple of days. I have been going thru lots of patterns to find what I am looking for. I have lots of ideas, and DH has lent his wisdom in as well, so it is going to be wonderful. Oh so anxious.

    I need some longarm lessons desperately Beth.

    OK I need to buckle down and work on babeyruth's row. I know what I want to make but can I do it? Beth knows what I am up to for that row and gave me a vote of confidence. If it works I think it will be perfect with the other rows. Having all the babeyruths fabrics already at my finger tips will get me off to a good start.

    Anna,
    I'm excited to see what you do for Babeyruth's row. That is the last one I have to do and already have in mind the design.

    OT Side note**I was playing Cheeky's video for dd and her dog came over to the monitor and kept tipping his head side to side listening. We just love the 'Happy birthday chew".

    I have the wall pasted with lots of ideas for Whigrose's row, now just to knuckle down myself. I have a doll quilt to do tonight, then later this week, after three blocks for another quilt to be done, I will get hers set in stone and completed. So whatever fabrics I need, I can pick up at the Buggy Barn on Saturday when I go shopping. Will be fun.

    Anna, you can do it. The hardest part is the starting and you do nice work. It is going to look great!

    OMG, Anna. Beth told me what you have planned for Babeyruth's row. (I made her tell me. I threatened to send in the night imps to fool with her machine tensions and hide all her threads.) Wowzers! She is one lucky lady.

    You are so talented so don't for a moment think you need to panic. You can so do that.

    Wow, wow, wow! I'm in awe of you.

    best,
    d
    Any chance you could post photo of the rows (without yours) just so I can make sure I'm still on track with my idea.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. I think all the other patterns people did including babeyruth are all stunning and I am just trying to do something that will play nice with all of them. This sure has become a beautiful row quilt I hope I can do the other rows justice by adding something pleasing. I do have to modify the original pattern to make it fit and work, as the original was 16 inches big.

    I 'll try and see if I can get the row posted.

    Everyone is so quiet. Working hard on their rows? I am doing some of that and breaking it up with practicing quilting on an other project. It will definitely be a quilting weekend. I do have to shop for fresh veggies and tomorrow we are having a family birthday party for my now 16 year old. My body feels old and tired. I stayed up way too late last night having fun quilting in my studio. Night time is when I can get in the zone quilting as there are no interuptions but I am paying for it today.

    Things are pretty quiet here on the quilting end. My commitment to the Group 6 is done and mailed. She should have received it yesterday but T & C shows it in the area, not delivered.

    For this group, I have had the row done for weeks, just waiting for Babeyruth to say she i ready for it. Then last, but not least is to get and do Babeyruth's row. I have my design idea already picked out. Might want pick up a a few FQs. Anna, I can't wait to see how your row turns out. What an awesome design. I have never seen that until QM shared it with me.

    Off topic but still sewing related - any one here use a dress form? What brand do you have and have you invested in the Fabulous Fit padding system? Any comments or suggestions?

    Best,

    Don't ask but some how I missed the -Off topic- disclaimer and my mind was pondering what quilting accessory that was. It must be time time have breakfast.

    Sorry to take so long on babeyruth's row. It has been slow go for a variety of reasons. I hope to get a little more done today.

    I have the one that is sold at Joann fabrics. Can't remember the name. I use it when I make my vests and coats. Never did the padding on it because it adjusts inside for the size. Is that what your asking?

    I will send off a couple of PMs to see how the other gals are doing and what the hold up is. Babeyruth has not posted in a little bit so hope all is well.

    Update, Babeyruth is moving along on her row, she had to go and get a couple more fabrics, but she is working on it. Haven't heard from Peggy, hope all is well. Whigrose is set for another row, Anna is working feverishly on Babeyruth's row, and I am working on Whigrose's row so I can get mailed off. Remember, the latest for the next mailing to be sure all is going along according to the set schedule is June 1st. So lets finish up row four and send on.

    I was purusing the other row robins and relooked at the schedule. I wonder if you ladies still want to keep the last mailing date at August 1st when our babies come home.
    1st Row – mail by Dec. 1st
    Row 2 – Feb. 1st
    Row 3 – April 1st
    Row 4 – June. 1st
    Row 5 – Aug. 1st
    I was hoping maybe we could hit July 1st for the babies to come home. What do you think?

    Right now I am hoping to get out in time for June 1. I almost have to because I will not be able to work on the rows again till July.
    For now I would like to keep the Aug. 1 date. Maybe when July comes it will look less overwhelming. It sure doesn't help that this row is going slow for me.
