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!

I think they're multiplying!!..........

Thanks to Gerda for her delightful siggies and also Ria, Ludy, Ineke and Mary (all from The Netherlands!) Thank you ladies! They are all beautiful siggies.

I have mailed my siggies in return today!

Today I am busy sewing on name tapes to Matt's new school uniform.... oh what fun:-( Not much quilting will be done today but hopefully tomorrow:-) Yes yes, I know.... that Beach Quilt is not going to quilt itself!!!! ..........wish it would:-)

26/01/10... just thought I would add .... THANKS SUE! NOW YOU REMIND ME!! I also own the iron on tape for my Dymo machine!! It's been working overtime today!

Happy Sewing!


  1. I have a solution for your problem: sew a label, quilt a row, sew a label, quilt a row...Tadah!

  2. These siggies seem to have their own personalities. What a fun exchange.

  3. I have iron on tape in my labeling machine. What a time saver. Love all the siggies. There are some very clever ladies out there (apologies if a man sent one, you're clever too).
