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!

The borders are on the Brights Baby Quilt - it has turned out o.k. Next comes the quilting and binding.... wait until you see the backing fabric!!!

Mother's Day downunder is May 9th.. I've made up these coffee cup with coaster sets... I just adore the Babushka fabric! I can't believe I found this at Spotlight!! The craft group I belong to holds a "Mother's Day Sale" next Tuesday, so I thought these might be o.k. to sell on the day, and if they don't sell they will make nice gifts for friends. (yes 4 Friday friends - you just might receive one of these sets next Xmas!!!) In the photos you can see two are finished and two are in the process of being folded and stitched. I have four cups to make up four sets. I might also make some needle-cases and pincushions with the Babushka fabric.

Happy Sewing!
