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!

CHRISTMAS BAG


Like many of you, I'm not getting too much sewing done at the moment.... there seems to be so much to do and suddenly Christmas Day is only 5 sleeps away!

Thought I would share some photos with you.....  my Christmas Bag which only gets an outing once a year:-) plus some of my decorating using my table runners and wall hangings.

As we celebrate a Summer Christmas, I don't have any actual Xmas quilts!  I keep meaning to make a Xmas bed-runner.
