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 know - this sewing has NOTHING to do with my new GO CUTTER!  I wanted to get this little set made for our darling little B.B.   Too cute!

I really need to get in some serious playing on the GO but this week is just flying by.  MH and I are back to our usual routine at the gym with a coffee after, so that's the morning GONE!  and of course, there is always SOMETHING to clean or put away or tidy up or whatever in our home - poor excuses I know - so tomorrow I will do a quick walk around the tennis court and then set up the GO and start cutting!!

Happy Sewing!


  1. cute little dress...you can be forgiven for leaving the GO for a little while

  2. Darling strawberry outfit!! Don't you just hate it when chores get in the way with fun?

  3. Strawberries-yum! Enjoy playing with your new toy and ignore the chores for a while!

  4. Very cute outfit! I remember making my daughter cute things like that. I have had time to sew today. I didn't have my boys for 3 days so I cleaned for 2 and sewed today!

  5. I know what you mean Helen ... where do the days go lol?? I've hardly gotten to play with my new toy yet either!!
