What I Made Today

Working with metal and soldering hearts.

And a vintage fabric heart with a chandelier crystal to brighten up a sick friend's room.

New Toy!

I have been sewing on a machine since I was 12 and have had just three machines.  The last one (a Sears Kenmore) was purchased around 26 years ago.  My very first one (also a Sears Kenmore) was purchased when I was in high school.  Those machines have seen me through a lot of sewing and they are still going!  But I have been having trouble with my main machine and saw this deal on Craig's List for a Pfaff Ambition 1.5 that I could not resist.  It was practically new in the box and I got it for a fraction of it's original price.  I can't wait to test it out!

And here is my Wolf Dress Form also known as "Lucille" all dressed for February and Valentines Day.  I have fun dressing her in vintage finds.  Silly?  I know but it makes me happy.
