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.

Krista - that is a cute Advent calendar. A lot of work on your part, and I know your kids will love it.

The 222 is what I have been wanting. I have 2 221s and may one day get a 222. I use my 221s all the time.

Itís been a little while since I have shared what I am working on. For awhile now I have been wanting to make my kids an advent calendar and I decided this year would be the year. I have high hopes to have it completed before December 1st, so hopefully I can get it done. The original pattern called for felt number stickers and I decided to go with wood pieces to sew on instead. They arenít due to arrive until next week, so it may be hanging without numbers for the first couple of days. Should have started this project a little sooner so I wasnít cutting it so close lol

I have a 222 that was purchased in England. I need to take it to the almost local Featherweight guy and have the motor exchanged for a 110 v one so I don't have to use the voltage changing thingy which seems to make it burn out bulbs. It is such a handy little machine with the open arm and dropping feed dogs. You don't really need to use tape to cover the feed dogs for free motion -- just set the stitch length to 0.

Yep, Linda. I hear you. I just put a piece of masking tape over the feed dogs when I need to.

I love my 2 featherweights - they are both black. Neither is the one I grew up sewing on, but I got them both off eBay for me and my Mom. My mom's that I grew up with and took to college was traded in on a Singer Touch-n-Sew in 1972 - a week before my son was born. My mother said to trade it in because they were giving me more than she paid for it when she was in college. I kicked myself ever since and had to buy one for me and one for her. After she passed away I got hers, too. They are the best! I still would like to find a Singer Featherweight 222 with the removable bed and feed dogs that lower.

The boys quilt top on left went missing for a month or so. This morning, as it often happens, I found it while looking for something else. The girls quilt on right is getting quilted. Rainy weather is perfect for quilting.

I have learned to store stuff where I can find it!

Diana & Jean.. yep! count me in!
I can park my wee camp trailer in Jean's driveway and stay over night and then we can have fun!
Jean is a 3 1/2 hr drive from my wee ranchette and I think you are just 45min from her???
(how's that for being brassy,, inviting myself over for the night??? LOL!)

Diana, that mini quilt is gorgeous! Great work!

Diana -- Sounds like great fun. And, absolutely we have to get Katmom down here too. She's the one who told me about the Featherweight shop.
Linda -- Yes, I have two. One a traditional black one that I bought myself shortly after graduating high school. The other is a white one made in England I think. I got it several years later. Nothing better for straight beautiful stitching.

Diana -- cute little qultlet. I love working with 1 Ĺ inch squares. I have a couple shoeboxes full of them I keep in our trailer for hand crank projects when we are camping.
Linda -- I wish I only had 17 UFOs! There are still more waiting to be finished. If the pandemic lasts long enough I may get them done but it seems like I keep fining more day by day.

Oh, Diana, how delightful your little quiltlet is. Will you use it as a wall hanging or table topper or ??? But, oh my goodness, 1-1/2 inch squares would have made me blinder than I already am. Awesome job!! You are just down the road from me in Orofino. I am in Deary. We MUST get together for a plaly day when this Coronamadness is over. We could meet at one of the great Orofino quilt shops and have lunch at that beautiful restaurant right on the river. I think it's at the Best Western Hotel complex. Have you discovered the Featherweight Shop in Kooskia (sp?). Katmom aka Grace turned me on to it recently. I've only been able to visit online but am anxious to get there in person and meet the great staff. Their website and Newsletter are fantastic.
Farmgirl Hugs,

Judith, thatís beautiful. You did a great job! And I agree with Jean, 17 UFOs is awesome! You have had a very productive year. I wish I could get some of mine done.

Oh Judith, it's so bright and cheerful. Just what's needed on a gloomy day that can't make up it's mind whether to be fall or winter. I have worked some on UFO's too. But 17 WOW!! You GO girl!!
