Happy Halloween

Hope all my readers are having a fun-filled Halloween.  Mine has been spent sewing and next quilt design.  There's nothing like an evening of sewing to brighten up any holiday, is there?!

If you bagged a bunch of candy or have a lot left over from the ghosties and goblins at your door, please eat responsibility.  Always keep a little of the good stuff set aside to mix with the candy you don't like so you can savor the experience.

Aqua Velva has arrived!

Aqua Velva went for her unveiling and preliminary check-up today with Dr. Shawn at Shawn's Center Center here in Springfield, MO.  The initial prognosis is that she's a healthy girl in good shape for her age.  She just needs a new leather belt and a bit of oil to spruce her up.  Thanks Dr. Shawn for verifying that my girl Aqua Velva is a good match for me and fit for the final adoption.  I'm pretty proud of her and will start looking into her history very soon.  

Isn't she beautiful!!!

My Beautiful new machine!

Here is my new sewing machine.  I've named her Aqua Velva.  Isn't she beautiful.  She was won on eBay and I am over-the-moon excited to get her and have her serviced so she can be used again.  She is so beautiful.

Completed Vintage Sewing Chair

So here it is, the completed vintage sewing chair.  The original was created sometime in the early to mid-1960's. This one is done in Kaffe Fassett fabric.  

This was fun to make and very easy.  Cutting, sewing and assembly can be done in about 2 hours.

Tell me what you think!
