My early Christmas present to myself

I was in a quilt shop the other day and saw this cute little Singer featherweight machine so I bought it! Yes I have a new computerized machine but this one is supposed to be a great little workhorse and I thought it would be nice to teach my youngest daughter to sew on. Plus I got a great deal on it! And it was too cute to pass up.

It also came in the original case and look what I found in the case with it (along with a cool old buttonhole attachment). Remember when JC Penney sold bias tape for 8 cents? I don't.

Click here for more pics. So I guess the tradition is to name them so now I need to come up with a name. Any ideas?

Belated Merry Christmas

Belated you say? Yep. I started this wall hanging at least 2, maybe 3 years ago. I had it all done except the binding and all these years, I never finished it. I would think about it, and pull it out, and then suddenly it was Christmas eve and I'd think 'maybe next year' and put it away. Well this time I did it. I finished it! And even more miraculous, way before Christmas! It's from a book by Nancy Halvorsen called Heartfelt Holidays Too and is made with fusible applique. I hand stitched the letters around the border and also around each appliqued shape.
