To cabinet or not to cabinet....

To cabinet or not to cabinet...

I have a few vintage machines (ok more than a few); and cabinets for four of them. I want to take some time and figure out which machine fit which cabinets and see if I can relieve myself of some of the cabinets.

I am himming and hawing over whether or not to bring a couple of cabinets into the sewing room and get rid of my horn cabinet... or just take the machines out of the cabinets and set on top of the horn cabinet.

No comments are necessary... just my daily musing.

Thanks for listening :)

Meet Abby

This is Abby, named for my daughter.  She  found it in Williamsburg last summer in a cabinet and brought her home to me.  I'm just getting around to setting her up.

I had forgotten how quiet these old machines are.

Have a good day!

Giving it that old college try...

Jump Start....

They say that the third time is the charm.  So here we go, again.  I've tried to jumpstart my blog the last two years and have failed miserably.  My only excuse is when the school year starts, my time becomes limited.  I have 150 followers that are waiting, I hope, to hear from me.

So what have I been doing?

Our grandson is still living with us.  It will be two years this October, but he is a sweetie and we wouldn't have it any other way.

He loves being with his Grandpa - and watching Might Machines on Netflix is a definite must do activity.

I had a hysterectomy on May 31 and recovery is going very well.  It is amazing how far medicine has come.  Robotic surgery is amazing.

Sewing is happening.  My current project is Hawk's Nest by Bonnie Hunter from her book Scraps and Shirttails II.  Like I need another project... but it is fun to dig out fabrics and cut.  For this project I need 942 half square triangles; amazingly I had 1300  bonus triangles in a drawer so the bulk of this project is already completed.

Hopefully I can make this jump start work.  I have enjoyed blogging in the past.  Sometimes I think Facebook has taken over the place blogging held in many peoples' lives.

Have a great day!
