Summer

We have had a lovely couple of days this week when Summer has returned
in the UK its such a shame our summers are so short and warm sunny days so few
I just love being out doors butterfly spotting 
but they only come out on the warm still days so had to move quickly
I managed to get a few shoots I did see a lot more but they move so fast you just cant seem to get focused on them
shame really as a saw a lovely Blue but it was too fast for me!
Never mind the sweet mummy sparrow with her babies made up for it

Look what I have found and it Fits Singer 201K

Singer 201K


Look what I have found 
 the Janome convertible free motion quilting foot set for low shank machines
will fit my old Singer 201K with a little help from a paper clip
this is Janome Part Number 202-002-004 

the paper clip is used just to bring the attachment to the left a little
although the needle does line up with the hole in the foot its a little close for comfort for my liking!
I used the paperclip as that's what I had near but you could use anything really!
when the paperclip is in place the screw that holds the attachment on goes through the paperclip & holds it firmly in place 


It comes with 4 different attachments
Open toe, closed toe,
clear view, and quilting plate

I did the freemotion ones below with the old simanco freemotion foot

But for some reason the spring keeps shooting off when i am in full swing
 usually traveling in the direction of my face thus making a pair of safely goggles a must!
As I don't think I could sew in goggles so i went on a search for an alternative solution
that's when i found the Janome foot


This is the Jonome foot in action
