  1. What have I got?

    by , 08-11-2013 at 10:35 AM
    Recently, I wanted to get a back up machine, so I scored an old Singer, sixties vintage(?) from a yard sale. My husband got so excited, when he found this old Pfaff at the thrift store, he just had to bring it home as well. I know Pfaff has always been a Cadillac kind of machine, but can anybody tell me how old this is? I mean to get it serviced, but don't even know how to thread the thing. Any info would be helpful.

  4. dyeing for 2 days

    by , 08-09-2013 at 07:40 PM
    well finally got to do some dyeing, did a blue gradation and then on day 2 did a purple gradation, my little cottage is so cozy, so nice to have my special space to work in to do my dyeing and fabric painting. Want to dye up enough fabrics for a log cabin quilt, so will be doing many colors over the next few weeks. Yes weeks, that even 9 years ago would have taken just a very few days. Even with the washer and spin dryer it is so hard on my hands, ah old age LOL but still so much fun, I do love ...

  6. String Piecing on adding machine paper

    I like it sort of wonky rather than each piece cut exactly the same and sewn straight..but you can do either
    I start with my paper in a box or in the pic you can see I use the thread holder...anything to keep it from rolling all over.
    I cut my scraps anywhere from about 1" wide to 1 1/2"

  8. Trip to the fabric Mecca

I am too scared to take a husband and two kids to Obi's. Wish me luck since

  9. I should be sleeping...

    by , 08-09-2013 at 12:02 AM
    It is 12:47 am and here I sit. I am past tired but have once again accidentally stumbled upon this site. It appears, I created an account last year in April, but never used it. (I think it got lost).

    I am working on a Raider's quilt, and maybe this site, blog, and the friends and family I will meet here, will be just what I need to get and stay on task.

    First order of business... go to bed. (after leaving hubby a note to wake me at 4am)

    Second order of business, ...

Anyone else have this experience and if so , how did you correct it?
