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 GREETINGS

WISHING YOU ALL A
VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS



I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A BIT OF FUN TO DIG OUT AN OLD PIC OF ME AND WHEN I FOUND THIS ONE I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST RIGHT!  AS THE MAJORITY OF MY FOLLOWERS ARE FROM OVERSEAS .. THIS ONE IS FOR YOU!  THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL SANCTUARY HERE IN BRISBANE CALLED "LONE PINE" - IT IS WHERE YOU SEE THE KOALAS AND KANGAROOS IF YOU VISIT BRISBANE.  THIS PHOTO OF ME WAS TAKEN WHEN I WAS VERY LITTLE AS YOU CAN SEE.  THE KOALA IS ALMOST TOO BIG FOR ME TO HOLD!



IT'S BEEN A FUN YEAR OF BLOGGING.  THANKS TO YOU, MY FOLLOWERS!!  I REALLY ENJOYED DOING THE GIVE-A-WAYS AND WILL CERTAINLY BE DOING MORE NEXT YEAR.  I ALWAYS SEEM TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW WHEN I READ YOUR BLOGS , SO THANK YOU!


I'M STAYING AROUND HOME FOR THE CHRISTMAS BREAK, SO YOU MIGHT SEE SOME ACTIVITY ON MY BLOG IF I DO ALL OF THE SEWING THAT I HAVE PLANNED!!  I HAVE SO MANY NEW PATTERNS - I'M ITCHING TO HAVE A WHOLE SEWING DAY TO TRY SOME OF THEM OUT.


SEE YOU SOON,


HAPPY SEWING!
