Here's a pic of some cute bags I stitched up using Elsie. The bags are a free pattern from Moda using their Honey Buns. The fabric is from the Blackbird Design ladies called Beach House. I really like how they turned out!! Elsie did a FANTASTIC job!!

I work at a yarn store one day a week. And if you know me well you know I can start a lovely conversation with a light post when it comes to needlework.....nonetheless, a customer came in and I don't know how it happened but we started talking about Singer Featherweight sewing machines. She lived in California and she and her husband travel around the USA. On their excursions they happen to pick up Featherweight sewing machines. They clean them up if necessary and then sell them. I expressed my desire to own one of these darlings. Well, dreams do come true. She moved to Florida to be closer to her family and stopped in the yarn store a couple of weeks ago. AND here's a pic of MY Singer Featherweight which I named in honor of my Great Grandmother, Elsie. She is a gem and sews just as I expected!! I can't wait to start a small table quilt!!
