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've joined the MUG RUG SWAP, hosted by Quilting Gallery.  These swaps a lots of fun.  Click on the button to read all about it.
I have been doing a little sewing but can't show you as it's a surprise for someone and they do read my blog!

Happy Sewing!

  2. I did see that swap and it does sound fun!

  3. Considering whether I can fit a swap in....probably not. Good to see you back around the traps Helen.
