I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 23. 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, two Essex and one Singer 20. 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!

AND THIS LITTLE PIGGY DRIED THE DISHES!



Trust me..... it is a pig!! Rather colourful and looking slightly cross-eyed, but a pig! another tea towel completed.

MH and I had a lovely day today..... we went down to the Gold Coast, had a swim, long walk on the beach, coffee and a bite to eat then came home! It has been a hot and steamy day so the beach was the perfect place to go! The rain is returning tomorrow apparently, so back to the sewing machine for me!! I need to piece the backing for B.B.'s farm quilt and should get it pinned ready for quilting.

Happy Sewing!
