Several years ago I found my first Featherweight Sewing machine at an auction…a 1946 beauty. (Read about her here.) And ever since then I have been hoping to find a 1961 Featherweight to go along with her. I’m still looking for that ’61 but I ran across this beauty recently….a one owner 1964 Featherweight! She looks like she just came off the factory line. And since there is a tradition with Featherweights to give them a name I have decided to call this one Lucille for my maternal grandmother. (My first Featherweight is named Nola Mae for my paternal grandmother who taught me to sew.) Have a mentioned that I love these little machines?! They make the BEST stitch as anyone who has ever sewed on one will tell you. I am thrilled the “Lucille” now resides with me and will help me make some beautiful quilts in the future. Now just one more Featherweight to find….that elusive 1961! And I am really hoping to find a tan one so then I will have the trifecta of Featherweights….one in each color! Wish me luck.

We had an enthusiastic group from RMA today painting a beautiful winter scene. Nice work all around.

Much More Holly

Yesterday our Homeschool Class painted the Holly and Berries picture. What a big group we had! Some of our regular students brought cousins and friends with them. The more, the merrier…….right?! That’s what Lincoln said anyway. 🙂
