TTMT #693 – Not So Heavy Metal

In which I AM NOT wearing a blue shirt (seriously, how did I manage a blue shirt FIVE Tuesdays in a row?!) and share some finishes plus some goodies I received in the mail.

The yarn used in the blanket is Lion Brand Cupcake in Sand Castle. Unfortunately, it’s discontinued, but there seem to be a few skeins still floating around out there!

Thanks again to Sarah in Houston for the goodies!

Lavender Temptation

Kenmore Sewing MachineI freaking love old sewing machines.


I have three vintage Singers, and have had as many as five at one time.

What? I gave two of them away…and they have all been unbelievable bargains I found at thrift shops.

I saw this lavender Kenmore beauty at Goodwill today, and boy did I want to buy it.

I really, really did.

It was missing it’s foot & foot screw as well as the bobbin casing, so I didn’t buy it. I promised myself no more machines unless they came with all their parts. That followed buying a machine with no power cord and no foot control…

For $20, though…SO tempting.

So tempting, in fact, I’m contemplating checking in again tomorrow, just to see if it’s still there.

Seriously, folks, a lavender sewing machine! It was even cooler in person…

What do you think? Should I break my promise to myself and “adopt” this little beauty?
