Horse Head Tuesday!

Latest Additions
Christmas orders are getting started and I’m sewing horses almost every day now. 
Tuesdays are my most productive days (hence the title) as that is my day off from my 8:30-5 job.
I will spend almost the whole day sewing! 
(thank goodness my daughter Heather loves to cook otherwise we’d starve!)
Tuesdays are the days I usually add new colors to the lineup~ if I don’t have any orders for that day. 
I really love seeing a flat piece of fabric come alive into a new horse as I cut it out and put it together.
Then I get to name them am create a little bio for them.
The whole process is a lot of fun!

And here is the magic horse machine!
It’s an old circa 1960’s Singer that I bought at a garage sale several years ago for a whooping $25.00! 
We keep it maintained and it runs smoothly (a little minor tweaking now and then).
I hope we can keep it going forever because nothing is built to last like these old machines! 
It still has metal gears inside.
I have a fetish for old sewing machines and pick them up whenever I find them…. 
You should see my collection ~ but that’s a whole other blog post!
I’d love to have you visit my Etsy shop!
or come see me at my FaceBook and leave a comment or two!
