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 there!

I have just updated my pages "more about me" - added a few pics of my life in Papua New Guinea and Samoa.  Of course, I have thousands of photos, but will sort thru them and find a few more interesting ones. 
Hope you enjoy!


  1. My husband's Aunt and Uncle have served a mission for the Baptist church in Papa New Guinea for over 30 years now.

  2. How wonderful to have been able to live overseas. Loved seeing those snippets from your former life. Do you miss it?
