Progress Report 3/10 thru 3/16

One of these days I will get my act together and really accomplish what I used to. I did absolutely no walking this week. :-(.
So here's the week in review-----
Monday-at LQS for Marti & Me Club.
Tuesday-had an appointment at the bank in the morning. Came home and finished quilting the quilt I had on the machine that will go to my Dr's. Attached binding to the front. Loaded a client quilt.
Wednesday-had to go get a mammo in the morning. Since it was a nice day, worked in the garden and did some weeding. Oh yeah---watched an auction on e-bay and put in the winning bid for a 1935 FW. ;-)
Thursday-worked on doing the step outs on the class I am doing in April. Also put together a wall hanging for one of my clients. She just lost interest in finishing it herself, so she is having me put it together and quilt it.

Friday-did some errands with DH
Saturday-went to a couple of estate sales. One of them had a treadle machine (which I did not buy), the other one had an old Kenmore (I mean an old TANK of a Kenmore) and I didn't buy that one either. However, on my way home I happened to pass another sale and though "what the heck".
I found an old Minnesota machine and at the price ($10.00) I could leave it. It needs some cleaning so I guess I'll do that in my "spare" time.

Tomorrow I will be going to a car show with DH, so no sewing tomorrow. Although, there are antique dealers at the show. Maybe another vintage machine???? :-)

I think I said in a previous post that I had gotten a Stanley 3-in-1 tool box to house one of my FW in. I have sent out the featherweight to be painted (candy apple red metallic). I didn't want the machine to get scratched in the tool box so I lined the inside of it. Here's the pics.

I also have a pic of the raffle quilt top that is for the retreat in April. Every year my friend Linda makes the quilt and I quilt it. The quilt is raffled at the retreat that we attend in April and all proceeds are put back into the retreat to help defray costs.
This is before quilting (I just finished loading it on the machine to be quilted this week).
