Making Do

Use it up.Wear it out.Make it do.Or do without.

These depression era words are sage and apply to even our lives today!

My main sewing machine is in the shop for a while.

I went a few days without sewing, and then I pulled out this beauty.

She’s a 1951 Singer Featherweight, and she runs like a top!

Every few months or so she needs a little oil and a chance to run, like an older car.

I get bonus thrifty points for the quilt made this week, though!

This week’s project was made entirely out of scraps and small strips.

The quilt came together quickly,

and I’m reminded to use what I have, and see how far it can stretch!

I was amazed that the scrap bin is still overflowing.

Maybe another quilt?

We shall see!
