6 fireballs from me

Here are 6 from me for the drawing. I’ve been away for awhile, fixing up vintage sewing machines instead of sewing, but I’ve been following along. Had to include a picture of my favorite machine for paper piecing now. This is the 99K I restored – love piecing small things on the hand crank Great block, as always –...

That was fun!
