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!

HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS
Pattern from Australian Homespun Magazine

I have entered my Holly Jolly Christmas quilt in this weeks "WEEKLY THEMED CONTEST" at Quilters Gallery.  Voting starts Friday December 17th.  If you click on the link in my side bar, that will take you to the voting page.  Scroll down to where the quilts are listed with a circle where you have to click on to vote.  If you don't find the list of quilts, then that means voting has not yet started. To see more photos of this quilt, go to my Picasa gallery or click here then scroll through.
