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!

Ah yes, the song titles keep coming!! as do the star blocks.........

Another two blocks done! There are now 20 blocks, I think that will be enough. I have plenty of fabric for the borders so will get onto those today. Will play around with the layout first, as no matter how closely you look, somehow it always happens that there are two blocks alike right next to each other!!!!

It's raining here today, lovely sewing weather. MH and I have already been to the gym, had coffee and sorted some paperwork here at home. I need to go to Bunnings Hardware (lawn grubs have invaded our grass) and Spotlight (need some 630 fusible pellon - I'm preparing to make another Farm Quilt!!) but after that I'll have the afternoon to sew.

Happy Sewing!


  1. you must get up early in the morning to have accomplished all that. I am still in my pajamas. Have you seen the new quilting book about farm women? I took it to quilt guild and it was a big hit.
