Running out of room!

I've counted up my machines. I have(are you ready) 19 of them. 10 are treadles. I got two treadles from a TO member last week, a Wheeler & Wilson D-9 and a Two Spool :D
Then, on Thursday I gave two machine heads - a new home and a white vs III to them, and they did a drawing - I'm finding out who won this week!

The same day I did a trade with someone for the quilt I pictured on the last post for two treadles. That brought me back to 19. Would it count for 21 if I got and gave in the same day, do you think?
I'm happy about the treadles, as while the cabinets aren't in the best shape, both sets of irons are wonderful!
They were a straight leg singer, and a typical singer. A 66 in the typical, and a 15-88 in the other!

On my quilting projects I am doing 6 blocks for a BOM swap. Then I am done with my sewing for the month, and can finally do what I want without deadlines. My next project is a signature quilt with 180 spaces...

Treadles Galore!!!

Wow! It's been a while since I posted. My family did our booksale that we do every 6 months, and that went fairly well. Not as good as some, but part of that was it was easter weekend!

I was able to get enough money from it to buy 2 treadles. I am getting a Two Spool and a Wheeler & Wilson D-9. I am very happy about both! Will be picking them up next week! :)

As far as quilting goes, here is my latest project. It's a queen, and was quilted on my Davis VF. It was a lot of fun to do!!

My dad has said for sure we are going to get goats, and I am happy about that - we've been getting goat cheese and have really been enjoying it...

I sold a Serger last week. I had 2 of them, a singer & a babylock and I sold the babylock. I also gave the person who bought it a treadle as I needed the space ;)
