2. The Name my Machine Contest - winner!
If you haven't been reading along, I ran a contest here on my blog challenging my readers to submit their choice for a nickname for my 'new' 1941 Singer 66-16 sewing machine. After all of the entries were submitted and the giveaway had closed, my husband got the job of choosing her new name!
For the record, my husband took this job very seriously. Comically so. I sent him the name entries on Monday night, he read through them all, made a short list, and then told me he had to sleep on it. He told me last night what his choice was. LOL. Gosh, I love him!
Rebecca G. won for her suggestion - "Ginger" - Ginger Rogers won for best actress in 1941 - and it just so happens, my husband is a film scholar. He *loves* Ginger Rogers and loved your name (although there were a few other really close contenders!). Rebecca, I've emailed you, so check your email!
3. Baby Quilt
I've managed to finish the backing for my Sister in Law's baby quilt:
