My birthday present
I've been saving my birthday money because I wanted to get a new sewing machine. I've really been wanting a featherweight. I just love the way they look and the history behind them. Saturday we went up to Trinity to look at the new travel trailer that the Inlaws gave us recently. There's a great quilt shop up there, Heavenly Threads, that I visited back in December. The lady that owns it is really nice so I was very pleased to find that she had a featherweight for sale! It's in pretty good shape-needs cleaning, the cord needs to be renewed, and the box is stinky! But I already love it.
I also bought some panels for gifts, a few fat quarters, and three yards of some adorable Darlene Zimmerman fabric. I plan to give Sister a yard of this for her birthday. I also bought a Quick Quarter by Quilter's Ruler to help with my HSTs and the corner blocks for DH's snowball quilt. Speaking of, here's some more completed blocks:
