Treadle sewing machine for sale

I've decided it's time to part ways with my old treadle sewing machine. If anyone is interested, just let me know. It's a 1909 Singer and I'm asking $300 for her, but that's negotiable. I really just want her to go to a good home where she'll be loved and appreciated. Obviously I'm in Ohio so unless you're nearby, it may involve a road trip! LOL 

And Debbie, I lost your email so I can't reply to you! If you email me again we can finish our conversation about moving. Thanks! :0)

Big plans

Ever since I got back from my vacation in Florida last month, I can think of nothing but being back at the beach. I've realized that although I was born and raised in Ohio, my heart is at the beach and I've decided the rest of me needs to be there too. So I now have a plan to move to Florida. I don't know when it will be, but once my divorce is final I can start making plans. And I can't wait! :0)

I've actually been doing some sewing! The last thing I made that was quilty was back in May 2015. So ten months later I finally got back to my sewing. I didn't have much of a choice...I had promised a friend of mine that I'd make a t-shirt quilt for her daughter's graduation. That's the end of May. So this week I got busy and got the top all put together. Now it's on its way to Joanne so she can work her magic on it.

There's going to be a new baby in the family, so I bought this minky fabric to make a blanket out of. Aren't those hippos cute?

And then I bought this hippo fabric to make a quilt out of. I found the green fabric the other day and it's perfect with the hippos. I bought extra so there may be some other baby accessories made to match the quilt.

That's about it for now. I did celebrate my birthday this week. And I got a new job that I start on Monday. So all in all, life is good! :0)
