I have started this new thread to replace the old one which was just too full.

Here is something I'm working on.



I'm using fabric from the fabric swaps.

OK, Judith, you win. I do have a few more than mentioned above - 2 Singer 128s, 3 singers, a Gimbel, 3 or 4 toy sewing machines, a second serger, a 3rd Singer 301, and a Brother. LOL! The 128s are both in Coffin Covers. LOL!

It all started with one handcrank machine I found at the street fair for $35. It was like Cheetos, I couldn't just have one. While I was on a three week cruise with a friend DH built the shelves and painted the room. Antique and vintage machines are fascinating and it has been fun learning about them but it is now time to part with some as my children have no interest in them. They are fun to use and I have made a dozen or so quilt tops with the handcranks and quilted several on the treadles.

Oh Judith,, I showed this photo to my hubby (of your sewing studio) He rolled his eyes and said, I could never keep mine this tidy! LOL!

I do not have a 'coffin case' cover but I do have one like your semi round cover, (rt side, middle shelf)..

It's funny, I too go back and forth between my cheapo Brother machine, my Feather Weight and my Singer 301...
It depends on what I am doing...

LOL! Maybe I can squeeze another Featherweight or 2 on one of the tables. LOL! I have 2 more featherweights, another 301, 2 128s and 2 treadles, but they won't fit in the room. Plus some other manufacturer machines.

Love the embroidery. I found my badges a while ago and have misplaced them - again. LOL!

Yesterday I worked on cleaning my crafting/quilting room so I could get to the table tops to get some work done. LOL! I'm trying to get UFOs in order, odds and ends put where they SHOULD be, and as much as I can off the floor. I got quite a bit done, but it really doesn't show much progress. Hopefully, I can get it done today so I can rearrange the sewing machine cabinets/tables already there and add in a machine/cabinet my son-in-law gave me on Tuesday. If things fit properly I will have 1 Featherweight (in its table), 2 Singer 301s(1 in its table and 1 in a cabinet), 1 Singer 302 (in a cabinet), my cutting table, and either my Janome or another newer Singer available so I can get busy. WHEW! Oh! I forgot my serger. LOL!

Been working on getting all the expert level badges I’ve earned stitched onto my bag. I have a few more to embroider and add to the bag. Hope they hold up!

Great headbands Linda. I love making them for the granddaughters. Judith I love your quilt.

Great projects, Linda!!

I just heard the expression, “A messy craft room is a happy craft room!” If that’s the case, my craft room is deliriously happy!! :) lol

Today I got several UFOs at least partially done. I used Christmas squares from one of our 10" square swaps that all had snowmen on them to make a Christmas quilt for our youngest grandson. I found about 18 squares in the stack I had from 2 swaps and added a few of mine to make 20. Here's the quilt top.


A while back in a closing sale I bought some cute headbands that were made from bandanas and decided to make one for me from a bandana I had been given by a farmgirl. Here is a picture of the 3 headbands I bought and the one I made that needs bling. They are super easy to stitch up and I have trims, buttons and can print up some sayings to go on the ones I make. What do you think?


I cut out binding strips for my red and white "Broken Dishes" quilt and may get them sewn on tonight. I think I will hand stitch the binding down on this quilt. May change my mind.

I'm also making blocks to finish a Christmas table runner that my cousin cut out before she passed away. I worked on 2 of the 3 center blocks before our cruise and I'm working on the third block now. Then lots of blocks for the border.

I have also been trying to organize my "busy" room - lol! I got a lot of heavier upholstery fabric boxed up to send to my SIL for projects that she makes. I have so many UFOs on my work spaces that when I want to cut a piece of fabric I have no room without moving things around. I'm trying to sort through these projects to give me much needed work space. A messy crafting space is a sign of a creative person. I heard that and I'm sticking to it.
