February Zoom.

 After the month i had it was wonderful to sit & sew yesterday with lovely ladies from all around the world in a Zoom session hosted by Chooky. 

Not sure how many ladies joined in as they come & go all day. I managed to get a photo at one stage of the day.

I worked on a block from Lucy

I had nearly finished adding the white to my block when my daughter asked if i wanted to run to the shops. Not really but figured i'd buy a few extras in case of delays with trucks getting through as with all the rain it's flooding in quite a few areas. Talk about panic buying, the bread shelf was completely empty. Makes a change from the toilet paper shelf being bare. Ha ha. :).

Happy Stitching,

Singer machines

 My lucky day today. This gorgeous machine came into my possession. I've been hoping to get a Featherweight 222 but they were either to expensive or to far away for me to look at before buying. 

Whilst away in New South Wales dealing with the passing of my Mum a local to me in Queensland lady put the machine up on Facebook. I thought darn i've missed out again. Well the machine was still there next morning & she'd even lowered the price. :) Still i thought what to do as there was no one at home who could look for me. I decided to message her to explain about my situation & luckily for me she was quite happy to wait until i could go & look today. YAY.

Here she is.

 

1957 Featherweight 222. Now i have a matching pair as i bought a 221 a few years ago.

Happy Stitching,

FNwF February.

 Boy FNwF has rolled around quick. I think i blinked & missed January somehow. Lol. I'd better not blink again or it will be December. Ha Ha.

Thanks to our lovely hostess Cheryll for another lovely evening of sewing.

I have been working on my Lucy blocks of an evening so i continued with them last night.

This block had half of the white border down so that was finished off last night & i got another started

Pop over here to see who joined in last night.

Happy Stitching,
