Monday Photos - Weekend Projects

Lots of sewing done this weekend - mostly because I have a new baby in the house.  Isn't she pretty?
Because of her, I've been a sewing fiend all weekend.  I started this pieced jacket that I've had planned for a couple years!
I'm close to finished with the Barbara Willis doll from the Think Pink Gala:
And I made a baby blanket for the new grandbaby due NEXT MONTH!
Now, Oldtimer doesn't think I should have this many sewing machines around the house.  Anyone need an older used Elna 700 or a lovingly maintained Husqvarna Platinum Quilt model?

Hi Sue, You've been busy! They are wonderful. I love that baby blanket, congrats!

I'm still petrified of machines. I have a beautiful brand new one here I think I have only attempted to use maybe twice and it was with supervision!

When you have a moment, please come over to my blog, The Sisterhood Award awaits you!

BIG hugs,
Sprite

...gasp...! I shopped for a new Bernina last spring (mine visual display is going to die soon and replacing it will cost more than a new machine. Grrrrr...!) and that is my dream machine! And look at all you've done already! I can just imagine the smooth hum as you stitch along... mmmmmmmmmmmm... nice!
