12" x 16" Colored Pencil on Pastelbord.
I borrowed my sister's Singer Featherweight for this painting. These great little machines weigh only about 11 pounds and fold up into compact carrying case. To my delight, the case also held some vintage notions and accessories, some of which I incorporated into the composition.

Apparently there are many versions of this game, and nearly as many spellings. This is from the 30's.
