Today was a weird day. I got up early and went to Body Pump, no Zumba, then to Kohls (but too busy so we left) then I went over to QQ's because one of our expected (secret) projects had arrived. As it turned out there were some potential issues with what was sent so he had to make a call and make sure we had what we needed to begin. As it turns out we had what we needed so tomorrow I will go back to QQ's and we will do some work together.
DH and I decided to stop at the grocery on the way home. I don't know if I told you but yesterday I was at the Salvation Army (or as QQ says, the Sally Ann) thrifting when I found a couple of vintage sewing machines. I copied the serial numbers down and came home to look them up. One I could find info on but not the other one. The one was in better shape than the other, but I was unsure. They only wanted $12.49 for it. What to do what to do? Really? Why did I need an old sewing machine. For some reason it was speaking to me, so I came home and talked to DH about it. He told me to go back and get it, that even if it was bad we were only out $12 so it was worth a shot.
Today I had to take the Mustang so I couldn't get it. When I got home DH asked wehre the sewing machine was so we went back and bought it. I had to go back a thrid time to pick it up tonight (with DH). He seemed as excited about it as I was! I think he is looking forward to making it purr like a kitten for me! LOL. So here she is:
The other amazing finds I got were this vintage sheet and this fabric. I loved the sheet. I can see this as a great back for something. The fabric? I think it might be by Tammis Keefe, but I'm not sure. Does anyone out there happen to know? It feels kind of linen like.
Once we got back home I managed to do a little sewing. I put together 3 rows of my Dreamy Stars quilt. It was too dark for a pic tonight but hopefully I can finish the rest of the rows tomorrow and then off to the boarders. I really wanted to get this done this weekend since I know how much I need to do coming up here really soon. Hope you are all staying busy this weekend too. ~XOP~
