I have just a bit of fabric in…yep, I hit up the thrift store. Two pieces of fabric…fifty cents each. Both are big enough to back a baby quilt so I grabbed them. The blue gingham might get passed on the Binkie Patrol gals in my area. The plaid…that’s staying with me as it would make an awesome back for a quilt make with shirts.
While I was at the thrift store I couldn’t pass up a couple other goodies. Both again were fifty cents. I like the cross stitch design and the thread colors. I am not hot on the canvas that came with it. I’ll use some other linen with it instead…still a deal at fifty cents.
Now I know you’re going to start laughing when I tell you about the bobbins. I actually laugh about it myself when I think of what a dork I am. I bought the Singer bobbin bunch but I don’t have a machine that they work with…silly I know. BUT..the machine that my mom and dad bought me, my very first machine ever, used this kind of bobbin. I LOVED that machine. I no longer have the machine as it didn’t make it past 1992. I want one and am on the hunt for one…someday one will cross my path and when I snap it up, I’ll have the bobbins to go with it…and if the machine never shows up, I’ll still have bobbins for it.
It’s this machine…I know you can’t see it very well but does anyone know what model of Singer it was???
That’s my niece sewing on it. Yep, she’s sewing on paper. My mom always gave the kids a sheet of paper to sew on at first. She’d take the thread out and the first lesson was always to sew on the line on the paper.
Now back to the stash report…I did use fabric this week for the Square Dance quilt we had featured in Quiltmaker magazine this month. If you missed it you can find it here. I also finished my Double Wedding Ring quilt top. I don’t count the yardage until it’s quilted but I thought you might want to see that if you missed it too.
Here’s the stash report numbers.
Used this Week: 13 yards
Used year to Date: 26 yards store bought + 15 Moda fabric + 5 yards of recycled fabric…
Today I am hooking up with Patchwork Times.
Oh..one last thing..Here’s a giveaway.
