Sewing Machine Cover Frenzy

This cover is for my Bernina and I love how it turned out.
Now it's time for a box style cover for Valentine and I think she'll be responsible for sewing her own.  Here is my fabric all cut out ready to sew but I'll make sure that she has some sort of batting or stabilizer to protect her.

Enjoy your day, we finally have sunshine but it's brrr, cold out yet, so it'll be warmer clothes for my walk for sure.

My Sweet Valentine

Oh yes she is and may I introduce you to my sweetest Valentine gift ever, a 301 Singer Vintage Sewing Machine.
Sew now I lovingly call her Valentine, doesn't she make your heart go pitter, patter too!  After 38 years my hubby still gets top marks and I will always remember my 2014 Valentine gift.  He won her on Ebay for me and what makes my heart happy too is that in the Instruction Manual there is the name Stella Simpson so I assume that was the first owner? and maybe the only.  I don't really know but may I send it out there Stella Simpson that I will love and care for my sweet Valentine as much as you did all those years ago.

Funny Shapes

An I'm not talking about my body but I do have a secret to tell so keep your ear close now...I've lost 10 lbs. Shh, I'm looking to lose another 10 so lets just keep this between you and me OK.
The funny shape I'm talking about is this pair of slippers that will be felted soon.  This is my first attempt at said knitting project so I'm very excited to have them down to my size soon.
See  how one is bigger than the other, well that's just my inconsistent knitting tension but that will work out because I have one foot a half size larger  than the other which is my Mom's fault.  Once they get felted they'll be awesome.
Also did a couple of more Owls In The Hoop and hope to make a couple more as they'll be gifts for my Grand daughters plus a couple on hand for gifts if I need something really quick. They need to be stuffed yet so that's a project to do while watching the Tellie.
Hope you are keeping warm or cold or somewhere in between depending on where you live.

Hoop It All Class

This is from our monthly Hoop It All class this past Saturday where we learn how to get the most out of our Embroidery machines.  It's a sewing machine cover which I made larger to cover my 830 Bernina though I do alot of my stitch-outs with my Husqvarna Ruby.
Here is some pictures of other ladies projects and what a great morning we had with lots of giggles and quilty stories.

I actually finished my project so it didn't end up in the UFO pile and I can actually use it, do you hear a loud Woot, Woot?
The weather outside is cool and windy today so I'm going to park myself in front of my sewing machine and play some more, hopefully you get some time to do the exact same thing.
