    This is a jigsaw puzzle my dad made me without even knowing about the featherweights that are so prominent on this site! The little Singer sewing machine on the right is the one I used to make Ginny doll clothes for and win ribbons from our neighborhood summer camps. I remember putting the doll with her newest frock on the table and getting ribbons! The little iron I used to press the seams... ahhh what memories. But the puzzle was an awesome surprise!

    that is an amazing gift! will you keep the puzzle together and frame it, or take it apart to piece over and over?

    I love it! Where did he find the puzzle to do? I would love to do a sewing themed puzzle for my quilting suite.
