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!

PAGES UPDATE.....Be prepared to be entertained with yet more photos of my life overseas.......... see "more about me"

and yes, I have been sewing today..... another three Christmas Quilted List-Takers.  These are such wonderful gifts for friends and really don't take much fabric or time to sew.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Those list takers are such a cute idea. They would be so handy too.

  2. I have never made a list take but they are such a neat gift.
    Enjoy your weekend Helen! It is snowing here and the weather has been crazy!
