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!

Today is the day!! I'll be drawing the lucky winner of my give-a-way later on, I will put up a post to say that the give-a-way is CLOSED, then I will do another post announcing the winner.

So, if you want to enter, do so now (click here to go to post for entering). I'm just popping out for a coffee (naturally!) and when I get home I'll close the comments box, and then I'll do the draw!

It's so exciting. So many entries!! and lots of new friends in my FOLLOWERS.

Not a lot of sewing done this week - I can't believe it's the end of August! I think I had better start getting some Christmas items made!! or at least a LIST!

See you soon!
