This is my Singer, well actually my Granny's but she was very kind and gave it to me when we bought our cottage. So as well as being a really beautiful sewing machine, it's also a bit of an heirloom!
In the 50s my Granny used to make all her dresses herself, and later made lovely dresses for my sister and I - not to mention dozens of curtains and cushions on this machine and I hope to live up to it's expectations!
I live quite far away from my Granny and only get to see her a few times a year, so every time I use my Singer I feel a little bit closer to her - almost like she's there giving me her expert guidance!!
So with the help of my Singer friend I have dug out my quilt project that had been on hold, and have got stuck in. Unfortunately our digital camera is on it's way out and has bleached this photo rather badly! But as you can see it's growing!!
