Love At First Sight

I've been perusing Ebay for a Vintage Singer 401A and with the difference in the dollar from American to Canadian I knew it was going to be awhile before I would seriously consider buying one.  Low and behold last night I checked out our local site Used Victoria and what should I see but the above mentioned sewing machine for sale.  Yes, and only a 15 minute drive from home and the best part of all the lady was only asking $40.00.  I know, only $40 big ones, well I was hyperventilating let me tell you.  Just take a peek at what I so lovingly brought home today.
Look at this beautiful wooden case and just itself it is a heavyweight.
Inside is this most beautiful Vintage Singer and I know we'll be fast friends.

Also included was a cute case along with a plethora of spools of thread, laces and bindings, oh so much fun.
She has a few cobwebs but I'll give her a Spa day tomorrow and she'll feel almost like brand new!

OK, the grin is from ear to ear I admit but some things were just meant to be and now "Gloria" has a new home.

Show and Share

Here are a few pictures of another Show and Share at Cloth Castle's Quilt Club awhile back, so enjoy.

I'm busy finishing up some bindings on wall hangings and runners to gift to my Mom when we make our annual trek back to Alberta for the dreaded tax season.  Seeing family is always fun but the tax man is never a happy encounter.  Enjoy your day everyone.
