SINGER SAVED for Michelle and Laura

a WIP for Michelle and Laura

Laura and Michelle rescued this SINGER
and I am honored to be asked to embellish

the canvas

 just need to paint more cheeses, wine (Pinot Grigio from a winery/vineyard I invent for Michelle and Laura), Dogfish Head beer, glasses, apples and ...

we'll just have to wait and see ...
and Happy ONE Year Anniversary PPF,
thank YOU for letting me participate in the PARTY!


  1. I have a Singer very much like this one. I cleaned and oiled the wood but never thought about painting on it. What a clever idea.

  2. Beautiful! My grandmother used to sew with one of these. I love the painting you did on it. Happy PPF.

  3. wow this is going to be fantastic when finished your friends will love it. Happy PPF. Enjoy the weekend, Annette x

  4. What an awesome project, but it makes me want to go open a bottle of wine (and it's still a tad early for that - LOL!)

  5. what a fun project! my grandmother's old singer is safe and beloved in my cousin's study.

    happy PPF

  9. Oh how cool! I can't wait to see the finished project. Happy PPF! Helen @ Natures Walk

  10. What a wonderful thing to do with an old sewing machine! It looks so beautiful now! I have one in my basement hall with the wood all marked up. Hmmmm....

  11. This is going to be terrific. My great grandmother still sewed on one of these, refused to let anyone buy her an electric. I was fascinated by the treadle.

  12. It was a beautiful machine to start....but now, it is even more special with your wonderful painting!
    Well done :)

  13. I luv working on different canvases, especially ones that you recycle. This is going to be lovely !
    Happy PPF
