At the Machine

Don't you love vintage Fisher Price toys? Shelbie has been making a collection of FP toys and recently acquired this darling sewing machine on Ebay. Isn't it so cute. I'll have to photograph some of her other fun things to show you sometime. Toys from childhood are so fun to have again.
I've got nothing new to show you. It is Thanksgiving week and we are all super busy. I hope to carve out some time in between the kitchen and spending time with family to do some sewing and get my row by row quilt put together (cross your fingers for me).

Today I'll be making pies with Allison. I hope I can apply what I learned at Laura's class. If things work out I'll snag a few pictures.

Oh yes, I remember those toys oh so well. Too cute! Hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving!

Those were before they figured out that they were a choking hazard and made them larger. I remember having the little people like the one in your picture. I had a ferris wheel with them and would put them in it and spin it and they would fly around the room. Then the ferris wheel mysteriously disappeared, hmmm.
Making pies with Allison sounds fun, that's what I'm doing today also (but with Becky). Have a wonderful and delicious Thanksgiving!

We even have a Fisher Price Nativity set at Deseret Book. (I like the sewing machine even more!)
Have a wonderful day with your family. I will be thinking of you:)

Wow I love that little toy! Sounds like you might have a chance for fun. I'm going to cut some stuff today so I can maybe maybe get some sew time in tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving. xo

Vintage toys ARE so much fun. Wish I'd kept a lot that have passed through my hands over the years. Have a great time with your sweet family tomorrow.

I agree 'sew adorable'. I've got to go dig mine out, but I know there's not a sewing machine. Super cute. I'd love to see some of the others.

How I loved my Fisher Price people etc... [sigh] to be 5 years old again for a moment or two!
