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!

Hello! I have just had a few days away visiting my sister up at Bribie Island again - this time I took the sewing machine!! We had a lovely time, sewing, chatting, watching old movies on tele and lots of wonderful long walks - I worked on my own version of Flea Market Boxes ... the quilt I made for my Niece. We went to lots of thrift shops - I picked up a couple of old linens for my collection.

I'll be back with some pics of my quilt!

Tomorrow my Mum celebrates her 90th birthday!!! Way to go Mum!! My sister is having an open day for visiting, morning tea thru afternoon tea - this way it's not too overwhelming for Mum or the visitors!

Happy Sewing!
