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!

I found this beautiful pink floral in my stash and immediately remembered when I had purchased it.....  about three years ago my son was in the school cricket team and they were having a fund-raiser match - yes, you guessed it .....  for Breast Cancer research!  I made a Grab Bag and put lots of lovely pink items inside - a pen, notebook, change purse and key ring I think!  I was so happy to find it and make another bag for this Appeal. 


  1. Oh that is pretty fabric. Kind of reminds me of Pandolph and Laura Ashley.
