I'm dangerously close to finishing up the first scrappy trip along quilt I started three weeks ago. So of course I went ahead and started another one. What else would you expect?
I'm calling it the circus clown quilt, for obvious reasons. I finished all the blocks this morning and I might just get the top assembled tomorrow. It'll make a cute baby gift whenever I end up needing one. People are always cranking out babies.
Yup, that's my new featherweight. Cute, right?! I picked it up at my LQS yesterday. It cost a pretty penny but it was there, I wanted it and it begged me to take it home with me. So I did. There was a brief moment of buyer's remorse this morning as we struggled to get to know each other but we're best friends now, no looking back!
It's a 1951 model 221 centennial edition in really excellent shape. Or at least that's what I'm told. The insides were super clean and the gears look like it's hardly been used. (Jon said so... I wouldn't know the difference!) But most importantly, it's a freaking adorable piece of history and I can take it with me anywhere I go. Worth it!
Oh and Lucy is adorable too, right?
Yeah she is :D
