Teen Machine

I was so excited when I was home in Australia to find out that my mum still has the sewing machine she bought me at the local second hand shop when I began to learn to sew! My Grandmother had it for a few years but once she passed away it was returned to mum.

The machine I learned to sew on!

It is a Singer 99k in a bentwood box. It is in the best condition of any old Singer I've seen, almost like new. Mum's keeping it for me, yahoo!

Dad's sewing machine!

Whilst in Australia last week I was amazed to find out my dad has a sewing machine in his shed that he uses to repair tarpaulins etc:


LOL I can't believe it! AWESOME! He picked it up at the garbage dump and repaired it. Seriously who throws these things away!!

Thrifty Thursday


I'm in Australia right now visiting my sons and parents so Thrifty Thursday will be back on the 18th of September. 

I'm hoping that my time back home on mum and dad's farm will inspire more quilt block designs to go in a quilt with these ones:



Happy sewing quilty friends
