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!

Just a quick post..... No weight loss to report but the good news is that MH and I went to the GYM yesterday, for the first time in a month! I weighed myself on the "normal" scales - NOT the ones that tell ALL!! Just a little gain but nothing to worry about! I enjoyed my workout yesterday and will go again tomorrow.

Our Winter looks to be over!! Spring has sprung and our days have really warmed up. I'll start my early morning walk around the tennis court soon - I used to walk for 45 minutes EVERY day but that was ages ago and I'm keen to get back into it!! We have a court here at home, so really - there is no excuse for me to NOT do this!!!

I have HEAPS of sewing on the go and we have a weekend forecast of RAIN so I'll be posting very soon about all the things I am making! More dolls, more quilts and a cute little bag for a special little girl.

Have a great day! and Happy Sewing!


  1. How fabulous... a weekend of rain so you get some stitchy time! We have a good snap of weather right now and that darn garden needs attention!...
    I hope we're going to see pictures of your stitchy progress?

  2. I'm under pressure from daughters to get a few projects finished for them...so I know what you mean. A rainy weekend always helps!

  3. All you bloggers who are exercising makes me feel I should be doing that too but I usually am just too tired when I get home from work. Does thinking about exercise count? Can't wait to see your next project.

  4. Once you get back to the walking, you will love it. Sounds like you have a great game plan!

  5. Way To Go with the revamped excersize plan. I think it's so much easier to get on board with that when the weather is better.
