I’ve arrived in Wellsboro – what a beautiful part of Pennsylvania!
I’ve got some time before going to set up for my lecture tonight --- so I plugged in my phone to charge it while checking mail and I came across some photos that didn’t get downloaded from Friday night’s lecture in Bedford….
Oh those crazy “Mary’s Quilt Shop” girls!
While in Oregon I got an email from Mary asking if I could send her the photos of my vintage machines and the names of each. How curious this made me! I was in the middle of the fiasco with a broken computer and a broken sewing machine, so I simply sent her the link to my Vintage Machines found in the tab bar above and hoped it would suffice --- but I have to be honest with you, I was SO CURIOUS what she wanted all that for!
I found out as soon as I arrived at the shop!
Mary found a cookie cutter in the shape of a sewing machine and she was off and running ----Theresa and the girls made the sewing machine cookies and iced each one and named them to match the names of my machine collection!
Do you see these blue THELMAS? They are after the Blue toy machine that Lucy gave me when she came from the Netherlands that very first time!
And Bea? That of course is Bea, the white featherweight that is with me on this trip.
She is my beat up “needs a new paint job” Singer 301 that was gifted to me by the Altoona girls a few years back!! LOL!
*HINT* You really don’t want to EAT the black icing before speaking – it will turn your tongue and teeth gray!
Willie is the oldest machine in my collection --- he’s just a poor treadle-less Wilcox & Gibbs machine head ---found all forlorn and non working, but I adopted him anyway.
Hello Kitty is the little Janome I bought for a “someday” granddaughter ---
And you all know who Barbie is! She’s pink just like the cookies!
My thanks again to Mary Koval and the girls at Mary’s Quilt Shop for making my stay with them such a treat!
The last of the cookies WERE a treat! I had them in my car with me on the way to Wellsboro.
Tonight’s lecture will soon be underway. Tomorrow we have a My Blue Heaven workshop ----and the fun continues!
