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!

Yes, I am actually quilting the farm quilt!!!!

I achieved quite a lot today, but won't be getting any done tonight, as my TV show is on... Inspector Rex. I'm afraid I'm hooked and just can't miss watching it!!

Tomorrow, my truly best girlfriend and I are going out for her birthday lunch. We are going on a bit of a shop hop and will lunch at the Redlands IndigiScapes Centre. My friend and I have been friends since we were in Grade 1 (hmmmmm .. yes, a LONG time!!).

Gotta go..... Rex is just about to start!!!

It's nearly 10pm, and would you believe, Rex was a repeat .. but I still watched him!! AND.. I don't know what's going on, but my Gallery pics have vanished from the heading in my blog - guess it's a Blogger issue so will wait to see if it fixes itself.
AND... I just sat down at the machine and thought "Oh, I'll just get in another row of quilting" but sadly when I turned the machine on, the lightbulb blew!!! Can't sew in the dark!!


  1. I'm just devastated that I'm not you're best girlfriend even though I've not known you for THAT long. Off to sulk in a corner xxxx

  2. Have fun with your best girlfriend! Sounds like fun!

  3. Ugh! I hate it when I'm ready to work and something goes wrong. What kind of gloves are you wearing in the picture to machine quilt? I'm taking a class on Saturday and one of the items on the supply list is Machinger gloves. I'm torn about whether to spend the money or not. Have fun with your BGFE. It sound like you have a great day planned.

  4. Don't you just love it when you computer has a mind of its own, I hope your blogging issue corrects itself. Happy Quilting!!
