Another AWESOME Weekend

Just incase you didn’t read the title of this post, haha, I had an absolutely awesome weekend!!

Friday night I had a Premier Jewelry party, fun fun. I made these pumpkin whoopie pies, so delicious.

Saturday morning I met with a woman who has asked me to make 5 quilts for her! Yea, that’s huge for me, like biggest custom order yet. The best part about this is that she had a Singer Treadle sewing machine that she wanted to get rid of. Well, we worked it out, and she sold it to me for $150. How incredibly ROCKIN is that?!?! Here it is:

Isn’t it beautiful, ahhh.

Sunday was the perfect wrap up for the weekend. In church, I taught the lesson in Relief Society, the one I was called on Saturday around 3:30pm to teach. Thank goodness for lesson manuals! It was fun to teach, never thought I’d say that, but I am enjoying it the more I do it.

Sunday afternoon my Mom came over to hang out. She and I went to pick the Singer Treadle machine, did I mention that it actually works! Afterwards we played with her blocks for her quilt and set up the layout. Here is the center of the quilt top:

It’s pretty hard to see all the prints in this photo, thanks to an overcast-y afternoon. We will be adding a 3 inch white border followed by an border of the snowball blocks. Can’t wait to get it finished up! I will definitely be adding some better photos once it’s done, I think we may do a little photo shoot. Hahaha, I say that like I’m actually a photographer, but we all know what my photag skills are like …. (sigh)

How was your weekend?

  1. So jealous of your awesome vintage machine score! My grandparents in Kansas have one and my grandma told me I could have it, and then my grandpa got mad, so it lives in Kansas still… with a cd player and a bunch of other stuff stacked on top of it! So sad!

  2. That is so sad. The woman I got this from said that it was just sitting for so long. She bought it in England about 20 years ago. I love love it!! I have always wanted one since I was very little. The thought of being able to sew without electricity was just too amazing.
