Here is my block for the Aqua and Red Bee for me. It's the block I've asked the other girls to make for me too. This is just about the last of my Bubble Gum Basics. Oh how I loved that fabric. I chose a few Kona solids for the background color of the blocks. Kona Coal, Medium Grey and Ash.
For this block I used Kona Ash.
A few weeks ago I found this little piece of awesomeness at a local thrift shop. She was $35 bucks. And like so many of these vintage machines, she runs great. So nice and solid. And I can't believe I'm saying this but it has better tension than my Bernina and I didn't even adjust it.
She was made in 1953 in Scotland.
I love the pictures in these old manuals. Oh, i think I could have been a 50's housewife. Well wait , maybe not, I don't think I'd like cooking, doing laundry or (gasp) sewing in high heels. I'm into barefootin'.
