I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 61, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 23. 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. 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 SIR, YES SIR.... THREE BAGS FULL!


I was able to finish another bag last night and one more today...

This a better photo of the first one!
Three bags, all ready for the Cazna Gardens Ekka Day!

I have had a lovely two days working on these. I listen to my I Tunes when I sew..... look away if you can't stand Country & Western Music or "old" stuff!!..... Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, Charlie Pride, Sonny James, Mickey Gilley, Roy Orbison, Connie Francis, Brenda Lee and Dean Martin - just to name a few!! I can listen to this music all day, every day - it's good to listen to when ironing also!!

In the middle of making bags, I made a few more siggy blocks too, as suddenly I have none left in my stash!

Hope the weekend is going well for everyone!

Happy Sewing!

  3. I just love them. Next rainy day, I'm going to take the plunge and give that pattern a go! Thanks for sharing. I had to laugh when I saw your title. The song sparrows in my back yard sing a little tune this time of year that sounds like "Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?", and I go around singing it all day when I hear them. ~karen

    Ekka Day - my mum is in a Nursing Home and they hold their own Ekka Day (they can't go to the REAL Ekka {see my link in previous post} so they have their own in the Dining Room of the home. They have chickens hatching right now and on the day there is all sorts of entertainment for them!
