Thanks to Ritaluck -- one month later, I found my own Featherweight at an estate sale ($150). I gave it to Lilly for Christmas last year. She was kind of under-whelmed. But I hoped it would be a gift she'd grow into....and one that could still be part of her life when she's my age.
|This is my Featherweight...|
|This is my sister Ronda, who is giving me a Master Class on ragged edge flannel quilts.|
She wanted a Singer Featherweight...and as soon as her wish was clear to me, RITALUCK dropped a 1956 Model, in perfect condition -- with the book and extra bobbins. SHE WAS SO EXCITED..($250).
The week between Christmas and New Year's -- Ronda and I always do a day with our girls.
|My Lilly and Ronda's Memphis...|
Last year, they each made their own ragged edge flannel blankets.
|Lilly picked out all the fabrics, but I did most of the sewing.|
THIS YEAR, the big difference was we wanted the girls to do most of the actual sewing...
|Ronda is giving the girls a tutorial. Their warm-up project was a little flannel bag...|
Next week, you'll see how it all turned out!!
