Say hello to Charlene and Beryl!
I absolutely love this photo they sent of the two of them (And yes they ARE sisters!) working together on their Allietare quilts!
Don’t they look like they are having so much fun, both in the quilting phase!
The photo came along with the following words:
Hi Bonnie,Thank you ladies! Perhaps you are watching tonight as well and get a big giggle out of seeing your own faces staring back at you from your computer screen.
We are sending you a picture of us sisters quilting our Allietare mystery quilts together. We made the squares in our separate homes and got together to put them together and quilt.
We love your mystery quilts, in fact all your quilts, and eagerly look forward to every year and your new design.
Thank you so much for enriching our lives!
Charlene and Beryl
I’m ready for some Quilt-Cam, aren’t you?
It’s been over a month since I have been able to sit at home on a week day evening and have the free time to do it.
In fact, I have spent ALL DAY (almost) doing it!
Hahaha! Check out this crazy kitty fabric!
And owls too! What a hoot!
I am sewing with THIS tonight.
This is my 1950s Household two tone metalic copper and dark forest green machine, Made in Japan. Just look at that sleek styling!
Isn’t she a beaut??
Her dials have me all a flutter!
She’s been used quite hard in her earlier life.
If you can tell, she has had the initials GA and a social security number engraved in 2 places on her bed. I was told this was something that was often done to identify personal items in case of loss or theft.
When I bought this machine, it included a sales slip for repair service. I was able to piece together the name of the owner thanks to a google search. You can read about it HERE. In honor of her previous owner, this machine is named Elise.
I first blogged about this little machine on Feb 22, 2013. 3 whole years ago almost to the day.
