Ohh baby, baby ......


Girls look what I found !! Yes a new Baby!! . I already have a featherweight 222k .... and now I found a 221 for a very very good price. I don't think have to tell you how happy I am :-))



I am still quilting only I can't show it. It is for an applique class I am going to teach in Amsterdam. I know that a few students also read my blog... so I don't want give away some surprises :-))

Last Thursday we had a very heavy storm here. There was a weather alert. The kids were sent home from school. This picture was in our local newspaper. I thought it was so beautiful, that I want it to share it with you.Unfortunately 7 people died in our country by falling trees and traffic accidents.

Wow, that storm looks nasty! Your new little sewing machine is adorable! It looks really small. Is it a toy or for real?

I have a featherweight too and am just using it for my first piecing project- aptly on a little quilt. Don't you love it! How lucky to have 2. It seems that very bad weather has hit all over the glove and the results have been sad all over, too.

That encroaching water looks frightening. Ohhhhh, Lucy, the quilt behind your new Feather....it's sooooo pretty.

Oh Lucy, that picture is unbelievable! And what a GORGEOUS baby! She has scroll work on the side! Oh someday I'm going to find one that is old and has that scroll work! For now mine is fairly new as featherweights go, but she works good! Oh and I can make out the word Chaos in the paper!!!! :)

Wait till you see all my strips I've cut so far!

What a beautiful find Lucy! I love featherweights but don't own one myself.

I am glad to seeing you posting on your blog again and will look forward to seeing your sample for the quilt class soon.

Lucy - your new baby is so sweet and looks so tiny against that big quilt. We had the storms over here but thank God our family didn't suffer any personal damage or injuries. The UK lost I think 11 people - it was pretty horrific - Germany and France were also badly affected. With the weather there's just nothing you can do but stay wrapped up inside and keep out of harms way - good quilting weather though!

Congratulations on your new baby!! I just love those little guys...and even more exciting that you got it for a good deal!

Your sewing machine looks so tiny against that quilt. Does it work? It looks very intricate! Congratulations on a great find.

Snow here is pretty too, but so sad when it hurts people.

We've been following the storms on the news - I don't remember storms so bad for many years. We have no storms yet, just sun, sun and more sun. Your new machine is lovely - wish we could get them here :-)

Lucy, congrats on your new machine! You're going to love it! I have a 222 which is about the same, that I got off Ebay, a very good price too, and she's in really good condition. Mine was built in 1947 and runs as good as new. They are great little machines. And this weather that we are getting this year, all over the world, is very strange. We have been getting freezing temperatures in Southern California!

Lucy,your new baby sewing machine is adorable! Good for you!!!! We've been having wicked weather too --- 200 car accidents in our local community within a 48 hour period due to icy roads. Fortunately, only one involved a fatality. I'm sorry for those who lost their lives in your recent storm. Thanks for sharing the picture, though. It was interesting.

That storm doesn't look like fun at all. Makes me glad that we live on a hill where the ocean cann't reach.

I keep meanning to comment when I stop by. But lately haven't taken the time.

I know how much you like old quilts. I found some of my Grandmother's (about 25) and am slowly sharing them. I also found some bundles of blocks. I am sharring them also. In fact my last blog was of such a bundle. I'd like to invite you to stop by and check them out. Tonight I will be blogging about 1920's, 30's, and 40's patterns of her's that I have found.
