I like your new picture! (the one of you) And I hope you find a treadle. Bonnie has me looking at old machines too, and I never had any interest in them before. Your Easy Street looks great.
I like your ort jar!I've been tracking yardage, rather than # of pieces. Today's blog posts show that many of us are trying to guess what the ultimate design is. I wonder if anyone is on the mark!
We call that a 'jelly jar' and use quart-sized canning jars to put our little tiny pieces of jelly/fabric into it and keep it next to our cutting table and machine ;-) I have a Singer Lotus treadle that came over on a boat from France after being used during the war - she still works great but I've retired her from active duty and she resides proudly in our TV room to be admired by all.Thanks for the info on the number of pieces, I was certain we weren't cutting and putting together as many units as we did last year w/Orca Bay and you've proven me correct!Good Luck w/your treadle hunt but just be fore-warned, collecting vintage machines, if you don't know already, can be very addictive and you need to plan ahead for space requirements as the herd grows, LOL...Happy Hunting,~Deb
Good luck with your treadle hunt! While you were watching snow as you made your geese, I was in my lightest clothes and was still sweating. I didn't want to put the fan on as it would blow those geese bits around.
Thank you for stopping by ladies, the linky is fun isn't it?Vireya, thanks for the warning, but I collect nothing, no danger of becoming a magnet for boat anchors :)
My mother used to use the term ort, but I hadn't heard it for years. I had to insist that this ipad accept it, lol. Good luck in your treadle search, I think that treadleing could be a fun skill to learn.
I've been looking for a treadle myself. 2069 pieces. Wow. I never thought about figuring the number of pieces. That's a lot!
I think I'm probably better off not counting the number of pieces, but I have to admire you for doing the math! This is a really fun mystery, I'm enjoying seeing everyone's progress and their own personal twists.
Love your little ort jar! This mystery is lots of fun.
I also save dog ears...I am on jar #2!!!!!XOXOXO Subee
Thank you for stopping by! Sharyn
