A new Year..... a new machine :)

Hello All,

I hope you all had a great Christmas. I did :)

Santa was good to me, see what lovely machine he bought to add to my collection.

This is a Singer 66-1. It was made in Scottland in 1917. And it works beautifully! This is the predecessor to my Singer 201. They call it the Lotus, due to the flower design on it. As you can see, it is a hand cranked machine. I wasn't sure if I was going to like that, but for small seams, like putting blocks together, it works very well.

A New Year brings new resolutions to many people, or words they are going to strive to live by. I'm just going to try and sew more, and get on my blog here and share what I'm doing with thread and fabric :)

This little machine is perfect for sitting on the table and sewing near the fire (especially since the snow is coming down!) Which makes me a happy camper, I love the snow :) So I've been working on my Bear paw blocks (Bear pawQAL by Lorna).

I have two more full blocks that are almost done. Then I'll work on the partial blocks/bear blocks. I'm going to put a border on this too, even though it's the lap size. So lots of work yet, but I'll get there.

Take care Everyone.

Linking up with Lorna.
