Some Dear Jane blocks and a picture of my treadle :-D

Not a lot of sewing going on these past couple of weeks since I’ve been research vintage machines and been away to collect on :)  First a picture of what followed me home from Glasgow.

Cabinet view 2Here is the Singer 27 Treadle.

Singer 27 headAs  you can see I have my work cut out for me.  I’ve cleaned up the head a little but I need to find a new front plate.  Then I need to wait for some warmer weather so I can refurbish the top and irons.  but it is really lovely.

Last week I made one Dear Jane block.  And here it is:-


F-5 Parcheesi - A combination of machine piecing and hand appliqué; and this week another :-D


B-4 Chris’s Soccer Field.  Which I paper pieced using my Vintage Jones Family CS hand crank sewing machine.  It makes a nice stitch :)

That’s it from me for now ; –D

Happy Stitching, Elly
