My new machine!

Hubby went to the DI (Deseret Industries) thrift store today and found this little treasure for me.  It is a child's machine dated between the 1940's - 1950's.  It is a sweet little machine (Stitch Master made in Chicago IL by Gateway Engineering Co.) that does a chain stitch.  Cost him $8.  He was so proud of his purchase that he had to stop by my office to show me.  Of course I love the gift and the fact that he thought about me when he saw it.

I am almost finished machine quilting the last of 3 quilts for a customer.  Haven't done much sewing for me.  Managed to fit in some time at lunch yesterday by taking my Singer Featherweight II to work & set up in the breakroom.  Got some of the half square triangle blocks sewn for my Craftsy BOM.
