I am so excited!

We have just returned from a business trip to Durango CO. Actually, business for my husband and visiting for me. It was so nice to see the sun all the time we were there.  While looking at the new renovations my friend had been doing these last few months, I spied this....

 She had taken the legs off a destroyed cabinet, topped it with a glass sheet and had created a very nice display table.  I sighed and asked that if she could find another Singer treadle machine, all in one piece to let me know as I was looking for one.  She gave me a strange look, then pointed to the other side of the room. There in all it's glory, was A complete Singer! My friend explained that since she was renovating, the need to downsize some of her pieces had to be done. The Singer was one such thing, but because of memories, she wanted the machine to go to someone who would love and use her.  "Would you like to have it?" she asked. I was speechless. I offered to pay for it instead but she gave me the biggest hug and replied that she knew that I would love and use the machine. She's mine!.....

I checked her number and she was built in 1920.  All her parts are working smoothly though she will get a clean and servicing once I get her home here in the Northwest. I had to leave her as we flew down and they frown on carry on that won't fit in the overhead bin.  Here are a few more picture... 

 


As to what I have on the design wall now, your guess is as good as mine. I started out with Turkey Tracks block and it morphed into this....


I was thinking that I could put the red strings on the side but the blue is starting to disappear. What to do, what to do... I didn't have enough of the dark blue inner border to finish the 9 patches...sigh...

Oh well that's all for now... Til later....
