Wow, so many thanks to all of you who chimed in on helping me identify that Singer sewing machine! I'm so happy to know a little more about it. It is indeed a powerhouse of a machine and when i first sewed on it two years ago, i could not believe how many layers of fabric it would go through...without a snarl or missed stitch. Amazing! Needless to say i feel fortunate to be its caretaker for now.
This morning, i was surprised, delighted, ecstatic, and honored to discover that my lil' ol' quilt called Pond Garden made it onto the cover of Quiltmania magazine's special summer edition!
I designed and made this quilt for Market last fall using a jelly roll and some yardage from Good Fortune. Now you can make it too! If you don't speak French, you can find the english version of the magazine here.
In my last post, i mentioned that we're moving. After we put our house on the market, to our shock and disbelief, it sold in two weeks. We didn't expect that to happen so quickly, and we certainly didn't have time to find another place to live in order to line everything up for a smooth transition from one house to the next. If only! Moving once is hard enough, but we'll have the misfortune of moving twice. Calgon, take me away!
I also started my business here. And by "here" i mean right where i'm sitting as i type this now. I designed my first fabric collection, mug, paper plate, greeting card, dishtowel etc. from this chair, in this room, in this house, looking out this window at the same maple tree across the street that i've watched change over the years and from season to season. I've learned and grown so much here, and am grateful for every moment of it. Though these items can't be packed in a suitcase, i will take them with me wherever we go.
Another wonderful thing that happened during our time here has been getting to know so many of you! Thank you always for your comments, support and friendships. Btw, there are a few things that we just couldn't squeeze into our moving boxes, so i was wondering if anyone could possibly help us out by giving a home to one of these?
*****Comments are closed for this, but come back soon! Another giveaway coming up soon*****
The upside of moving is that Franny and Lou are loving all these boxes!
Have a great weekend.
