My "New" sewing machine

Last time we were at my in-laws my mother-in-law gave me a new machine. Well, new to me. My best guess is this is from the 1950's. It is a dressmaker TAZ 289, made in japan, and under the singer parent group. I took it to the local shop and it now runs wonderfully. I am still learning what it likes, but so far its working great. I haven't used it much yet though. I do know that it does not seem to like batik fabric. But I am super excited and love it!!

And Aiden at 3 months!! 

Hope every one is having a great weekend. Hubby and I are just chillin' on the couch watching TV, neither of us slept good so its a good day for that, plus I have a migraine so not much happening!!  Enjoy the week! Happy sewing!

2 finishes!!

I recently finished up another quilt. I have several that I have not posted pics of so here they are!!
This one went to a dear friend of mine that I work with for her 3rd daughter. This is girl number 3 in less than 3 years. She has a set of "irish twins" now!!

The second quilt is mine! I love blues, greens and browns. So I made myself a pinwheel (my favorite block!) quilt! I love it...its perfect, not too big, not to small!! I quilted a 1/4 in on each side of the seams and it looks great!!
Here is the backing for it!
And the most wonderful news of the last 2 months, Aiden Stephen, born April 12th. This picture he is about 10 weeks, and no, he is not mine, but my grandson. Rich and I went to NC to see him right after he was born and it was wonderful to not only get away but to see the kids and meet him!! I am so moving to the beach!
Shannon, Ashley and Aiden
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their summer!!
