I have some new quilts visiting me, although, technically, they are not quilts yet. Adding the quilting to these quilts for our prayer quilt ministry will be my job...
I've been asked where to lower feed dogs on a vintage Singer 15-88 thru 91. Here's my Singer 15-88/90. (It came with a motor but was in a treadle so that it could be used either with or without electricity. I removed the motor and gifted it to Moriarty's Old Sewing Machine Guy.)
This is the screw that needs to be loosened and glided forward so that the feed dogs will drop.
Many other Singer models do not have this capability. I read last night that the 201 was considered a seamstress's/dressmaker's machine and the 15/88-91s were considered "The Farmer's Wife" machines. I think that might be a myth.
I have no therapy appointments today, so I'm hopeful that I will accomplish a great deal.
We're continuing to pray for rain. We had clouds, lightning, thunder, and rain on three sides of us yesterday, but nary a drop here. In fact, in Albuquerque there were even some flash floods. On my way to an appointment yesterday, my windshield was hit by *one* big, fat drop of rain. That was it.
When I was young, I marveled at how the old farmers' conversations were filled with much talk of the weather. Now that I'm getting old myself, I find the weather the subject of my thoughts too.
I'm going to link to Esther's WIPs on Wednesdays as well as Freshly Pieced so you can find and comment on a lot of lovely projects by other quiltmakers.
