Tommy working on the wiring on my "new"machine.
The cord to plug it in was just bare wires. The first time he finished it run with out the foot petal but he worked on it some more .
The grease I ordered came the next day after I found my old tube but it's nearly empty so that's Good.
Got it from the Featherweight shop.
Got this to for my Baby.
Have a great weekend

I started the second nursing home quilt. I will finish this long before I finish the first because we have to hand quilt the first.
I need to look for some more bright colors for the other rows. I have enough of this for another row I think.
Tommy went out and pulled some more corn last night so afraid the birds will eat it up. so I have another big pan to put up.

This is Wayne holding his quilt, he will be 17 next Monday so I got it to him early.
So it the truth.
He want to be a engineer.
The sun makes a lot of difference with the color.
I now have 14 dozen ears of corn in my freezer.
My tomato's are rotting as fast as we pull them. We eat a couple a day and I can't get enough to can any yet. Hopefully it will improve.
My winner from my giveaway was Margaret. I mailed it to her this morning.
Have a good one.

My daughter came and got her quilt yesterday.
This morning she came by after she got off of work at 6 and left me some pretties.
I wasn't up so she left it on the back porch.
Kari my sweet grand daughter found this some where and sent it by Jessie to me by way of her mother.
The petal is from a later model of machine but some one wired it up and it chugs along.
But right now I have else something I must do.
We planted so late that we are having all kinds of problems.
Got to get that into the freezer today.

As luck would have it I ran out of filled bobbins and still had a corner left to quilt.
But I filled another and finished .
Now Wayne's quilt is on the couch and I am sewing down the binding.
After the sun left the yard late yesterday Tommy got out and cut grass.
This is what I got out of the garden yesterday.
we got 2 inch's of rain last Sat. and haven't had any since. Maybe this weekend.
Have a good weekend

Still working on this!
I started quilting yesterday and we had company so after they left I quilted some more.
Should get finished today and maybe get the binding sewed on.
Being a queen it takes a while and I make lots of stops.
Quilting on this! It's boring for readers when all you are doing is quilting by machine or hand.
Have a good one.

I worked on quilting this yesterday.
May have nearly half of it done. His birthday is next Monday.
I bough one at a quilt shop last year but it's not strong enough to hold it.
Lined it with a flowered fabric.
It's kind of boring when I am quilting, because I do it for a while then stop so my arms and shoulders rest.
Have a good one

I finished quilting and binding the vintage farm quilt.
I sandwiched Wayne's Quilt and have ironed it so it's ready to start quilting.
Thinking about making another and quilting it on the machine since I have enough of the backing left for another. Using flannel for backing.
I really worked over the weekend.
