Quilts & a New Addition to the family

I have kept my nose to the grindstone this last week until today. My goal was a quilt a day and I have managed to do that. Here are a couple of quilt that I have completed this week.

Next up---Farmer's Wife

Now on to other news. I have a new addition to my family ( my family of machines that is).
I was perusing Craigslist the other day and happened to see a listing for this little gem.

Well long story short. It was a 2 1/2 hour round trip, but home it came. I still have to go through and do a little cleaning and  oiling, but isn't she a beaut?

It came with a manual and TWO boxes of attachments and a few other goodies. I am soooooooo stoked to get going on this and start sewing on it. Before I can spend too much time on it I do have to finish the last 2 quilts that I should have done by now.  I guess this will give me incentive to get to work.

Til later,
Hugs & Stitches,


  1. Congrats on the lovely finishes, Mary! And.... WOW! that is one great addition to the family! Hope you get her up and running. Have fun!

  2. I'm sure getting the urge for a treadle sewing machine. Not sure how to go about it but will check around. She's a beauty and also your quilts.

    1. Woodie,
      Saw one listed on Craigslist that's in Tenino, that's the same as the one I have. Looked to be in pretty good condition. I finally got to stitch a little on mine the other day and had so much fun. Has a really nice stitch. I'm starting out with a little string piecing first to get use to it.
