I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 24. I enjoy embroidery and applique and prefer to machine piece and quilt my projects. I love my vintage Singer sewing machines especially my Featherweight 222K. I've recently started collecting Miniature Sewing Machines, three Essex and one Singer 20 and a Vulcan Countess. My love of sewing I believe comes from my Grandmother - I still have the drawings she made for me to embroider on tea towels many many years ago!

This little project has been on my "to do" list for way too long!! I copied the old cover my Mum had made over 30 years ago!! I used some lovely retro pink paisley fabric - B.B. looked like she was happy with it:-) She immediately put a doll in it and pushed it around my Sister's lounge-room. I forgot to take a photo on Xmas day, but my Sis sent these over to me today. B.B.'s Poppy repainted the pram and fixed it up - this pram belonged to B.B.s Mum when she was little!

It's raining here today, really good rain too - so I'm having a lovely day in the sewing room...... still working on the Beach Quilt but it's starting to take shape and hopefully will be quilted and finished this week! (I know..... I said that last week!!)

Happy Sewing!


  1. I love the pram (we call it a carraige across the pond). You are so creative! Have a wonderful New Year!

  2. Love the little pram and it is extra special because it has been in the family so long.
