My fingers are crossed that we can get Quilt-Cam to be functional today!
I’ve tested…a different computer. All systems seemed to be go. Then Son Jeff said he could make it “work better” if he made my external camera DEFAULT on the newer laptop.
Okay. Will it work? I don’t know!
I’m kind of one of those if it ain’t broken, don’t change it!
Like I said…we will try! I’ve felt jinxed most of December, so…let’s hope THAT streak is over!
This lovely Singer 301 machine belongs to Kathy in Victoria, BC!
“Hi from Kathy in Victoria, BCIt looks perfectly good to me, Kathy!
String piecing along wth you tonight Bonnie on my 301A. Gosh I need practise on sewing a straight seam, yikes.”
String piecing is one of my favorite things to do with all of the never ending leftovers we end up with. I ALWAYS have at least one kind of string piecing project going, just to get the most out of those precious scraps.
I’m back working on my String Spider Web today. I want it big..and it needs to be done before I go to Alaska in May! So the crunch time is on to push this from Quilt-Cam Project to finished quilt.
Making a mess already!
This is my little 1885 Singer Improved Familiy machine. I found it on Craigslist for a mere $85.00 a couple of years ago. I don’t play with this one much…the bobbins are kind of funky, at least the loading of them is. This is one of the earlier class 15 machines, but there is no separate bobbin case, the bobbin goes down underneath in this little trap door. Yep, this one takes a bit of fiddling to get the bobbin in, and maybe that is why I don’t sew on this one too much.
Proof that women were shorter in 1885!
The higher cabinet ledge is a 1950s cabinet. The lower ledge, the 1885 treadle machine. It’s also not so comfy to treadle at this for long periods as a tall girl. I find myself caving in the middle to get my face closer to my work!
