Monday Making

Did I need another sewing machine?
No. I didn't.

I wasn't going to purchase this SWEET little green number,
but I couldn't get it out of my mind.
I was dreaming in GREEN, believe me!

I went back to the thrift store and it was still there.
AND not only THAT....
the price was lower!!!

What to do.
What to do....

I guess you know what I did.
 I've been sewing up a storm ever since
on my new little friend!.......

Making a string quilt.
The scraps are flying!!!

I was also honored to have an art quilt
included in a local exhibit at Greenly art space.
Mine was the only quilt.
What fun!!!

I am all caught up on Barbara Brackman's
Hospital sketches quilt along.

Making each of the blocks MY OWN!

What are YOU making this week??

  5. I am never lucky to find such gems at thrift stores. Of course you have to go and I rarely have the time. But I did get lucky on ebay. After bidding on 2 machines, I only wanted one, I won them both. Hopefully they arrive in better condition than the machine in my current post. Love the art quilt.
