merry christmas

Merry Christmas!
Hope that you have been enjoying this holiday season and are ready for Christmas! So, I was determined the last week to start/finish a special project that I had purchased last year, and I am happy to say that last night I completed my first vintage Bucilla Santa Mail Bag just in time for Christmas!
Wow, these kits are a lot of work, but so worth every stitch, sequin, and bead in the end. I have to say that I'm so in love with this Santa! And, I think that he just might have to find a permanent spot in my sewing room so I can see him all year long. Now, to relax and recharge for the new year. 
Wishing you and yours a most joyous and blessed Christmas! 
Thank you for all your love and support this year. You have truly blessed me and brightened my year! May you enjoy the holiday season and see you in 2015! xo

"But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord..."Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rest." Luke 2:10,11,14

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!
