    new sewing machine

    I just wanted to show everyone my new machine and the stitching it does. I did this on dark fabrics so it is more visible.

    I was gifted this beauty today from another quilter, coworker who knows I love anything vintage. Oh, what fun I am going to have with this little chain stitch piecer from 1953 and never used. I have a glass display box where she will live when I am not playing with her.

    What a cute machine and as a graphic designer, I love the box in the background! I'm not a collector but I do love old stuff...

    Oh what a nice machine.
    Sometimes it's ok if the only thing I did today is breath, because my Lord is watching over me.
    When I can, I sew.

    Good family and friends are right there with me.

    I named her after the sweet friend that gave her to me, a true and adventurous hippie, not unlike myself.

    I had the suspicion that was where the name came from ... unless by chance it had been the name of the original owner. Enjoy your new machine!

    Oh, what fun! That's the kind of new machine that I love. Enjoy your new treasure. The toy machines are like potato chips, one is never enough.
