Hi Bonnie, I took this photo this morning! Our dog Ernie thinks that the treadle on my machine makes a very comfy headrest! Makes it a bit hard for me to sew!
Kathy from cold wet Western Australia
I don't know about you, but I am envious of Kathy's FLOOR!
This is the last Quilt-Cam time we will have until I return from Ireland!
And because I’m on my way to Ireland, I’m feeling very EMERALD GREEN!
What do I have that is Emerald Green? My new Elna Grasshopper of course!
Only…she is running VERY SLOW..even without the low gear attached…so I’m thinking, hoping that she just need a good solid running to break some of that old oil loose..I’ve oiled and lubricated her today and just want to run it to see if we can increase speed over time.
In the mean time…I think I can TREADLE faster! But that’s okay….we need to baby this girl to find out if there is anything simple to help her sew faster – or if I just need to take her in to the vintage machine spa for a once over.
Sew up and Ready to Sew!
For those wondering about the Grasshopper’s size?
A bit taller than the featherweight with way more throat space!
Ready to sew with me? Click the arrow on the feed blow to view my live web-cam! If you are here “after” the fact…it will be archived via youtube and ready to view as soon as they publish it upon completion! Whether live, or recorded….I hope you will make some progress on SOMETHING while spending this time with me in my basement studio!
