a most lovely singer featherweight

Happy sweet day to you!
How are you doing? It has been such a busy month for me with my shoppe, and I am so grateful and appreciative of my amazing and sweet customers for all their love and support of my handmade business this year. They have blessed me so!!
My shoppe is now closed for the holiday season and will be reopening in the new year. I am looking forward to relaxing and recharging for the year ahead. I still have some gifts to finish up and projects to work on for myself, so my hands are never quite resting. ;)
Well, Christmas has come a little early for me this year!! I am happy to be the new owner of my first Singer Featherweight sewing machine given to me by my lovely mother. My great grandmother gave it to her, and now she has passed it on to me which I am so excited about!
I looked up the serial number to find out what year it was made, and it was "born" on June 26, 1947. I guess they all have birthdays which is fun to know!
The detailing on the face plate and gold pin-stripping all over adds such a beautiful and special touch! They really are such amazing little machines!
So, I am completely in love with it and can't wait to oil it and start sewing away! I am beyond thrilled to have this family heirloom to treasure now.

Hope that you are doing wonderfully and enjoying the holiday season! Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me!
 Wishing you a most lovely week and Merry Christmas!

mini maple leaf quilt

Happy November!
Hope you are doing wonderfully and enjoying some lovely autumn weather! I wanted to get one more fall project in before I start Christmas sewing, so I made another mini wall quilt with maple leaves. 
I used a mix of some of my favorite vintage and new fabrics in pinks and yellows, with a cream and gold sparkle background, and bubblegum pink stripes to finish it off. I kept the hand quilting simple with just one set of diagonal lines, which I loved how it turned out!
So, now it's hanging up to enjoy for the rest of this month until Christmas decorations take over my home! ;)
I have started some Christmas sewing for the shoppe, and this sweet deer is one of the projects I started using the darling deer pattern from the Bustle and Sew magazine. I am thinking this would be sweet on a felt Christmas stocking, which I want to make soon!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me!! And, to see more peaks at my Christmas makes for the shoppe this year, you can come visit me on IG!

Wishing you all a lovely and crafty day! xo

pinwheel quilt and new treasures

Hello sweet friends!
Hope that you are enjoying some lovey autumn weather! It has finally cooled down and I have been enjoying those crisp cool autumn days and nights. 
I was so excited the other day to get some happy mail with my pinwheel quilt arriving back from the talented and sweet Donna of Donna's Lavender Nest who so beautifully quilted it for me! I just love how it turned out! She did such an awesome job!!
Here is a peak at the back. I used a vintage sheet which I just love using, and found some of these pretty aqua stripes for the binding. I can't wait to get it all finished, so I can start cuddling up with it!
So, this is my newest treasure that I am loving! I have been wanting a small chalkboard for awhile, and actually passed one up that was smaller than this at estate sale because of the price. Well, the other day at the thrift store, this beauty was waiting for me to bring it home and for under $5! It is meant to hang on the wall and not really sure of the history. Maybe it hung in a classroom or store?
So, I had a little practice on my chalkboard art for Halloween. It's not the best, but hopefully I'll get better. I am not great when it comes to drawing. ;) And, you can see my first little Gurley witch girl candle that I found, too. Her face is gone, but she's still cute!
This is another recent find that I am so looking forward to getting stitched up for the holidays. I have been on the look for this pattern, and how fun to have it already stamped, and ready to stitch away!

Well, thank you for all your lovely comments on my new autumn pretties! I have been working away on custom orders, and will soon be starting my Christmas goodies. 

Wishing you all a most lovely weekend, and thank you so much for coming by to visit with me! xo Heather
