About 10 days ago I posted that I had be given an old but hardly used sewing machine. After being fitted with a new foot peddle the machine is working beautifully. The plastic cover however had seen better days and was badly torn, so I have made made a new cover. I will be giving the machine to my youngest daughter Emma, who at the moment shares my old sewing machine with her sister.

Thank you. I think that is why I have never attempted quilting. I have to make things quickly.

The machine does look new. The cover you have made it is terrific I love the print the car in it reminds of me of a car my hubby got me as wedding gift he knew I loved it. A 1953 Cadillac limo. That thing had no power steering and a tank but, I loved it. I love the added embroidery designs you have here this is a gift of love. I am sure she will be happy, love with it , Laugh and sew and the apple don't fall far from the tree she will also work hard she has a great mother.

Thank you Michelle. It is most unusual for us to get fabric like this. Unfortunately it frayed like mad, which kept me on my toes!!
