Meet Valentine

Here she is My Black 221K
All rewired & ready to go
Named her Valentine as she came into the world on 14th Feb 1955
Kilbowie Clydebank, Scotland 

My name is Pam
and I AM a featherweight addict!
I also did a little freemotion this week with some fabric scraps
I got when I went to the craft show & the NEC Birmingham

 I also made this little needle case

I got this silly Kitty Cat kit with a magazine subscription
Made up quickly thinking what on earth will I do with it
Should not have worried my daughter bagged it for her bedroom

Machine getting a spoiling

The Singer featherweight is getting a spoiling
although I am still waiting on a replacement bobbin case so have not been able to sew with it yet,
it has had a good cleaning & oiling & purrs like a cat
I made this great little Tote come cover with cute little bag to hold the foot peddle
this great pattern was courtesy of craftyhipster HERE

 "Its a Cover"
 Little foot peddle bag a neat idea as peddle sits on machine bed when its in its case & could quite easily scratch the paintwork and i would not like that!

Turn it over &
 "Its a Tote"

and it all fits neatly into the sewing machine case
handles make it easy to remove!

I have to try & get the musty smell out of the case next
any ideas

Singer featherweight

Look what I got
A sweet little white Singer featherweight 221K
1963 model I was just 8 when she was born!
I am waiting on new bobbin case assembly"££ don't ask" before I can use it as the one that came with it was really badly rusted supprise really as the machine & case are really quite perfect
it even has the original white motor belt & its in perfect condition
little box with the attachments & pale blue case with navy lid 
its so cute!
I must say I was really surprised  just how light & small it is in real life,
 I would have loved one of these when I was a kid but never new they even existed
so used my mums 99K to make my dollies outfits 
will post more pictures when I get her new bits & hopefully she will sew!

Look what time of year it is again

Look what time of year it is again 
where has the time gone 12 whole months since   last lambing time!
just a few snap shots to show you what your missing!
any one fancy the night shift!
you only have a torch we have not got electricity in the sheds
it gets a bit dodgy when you have to help with delivering its a bit of a balancing act!
