I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, 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. I've recently started collecting Miniature Sewing Machines, two Essex and one Singer 20. 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!

MUG RUG PARCEL..... SENT!

MUG RUGS - WITH QUILTED LIST TAKER
READY TO SEND OVERSEAS

I have sent my parcel to my Mug Rug Swap partner.  I also put in a Quilted List Taker made with Australiana fabrics which included an Aussie notepad and pen plus bookmark.  My partner should receive the goodies within 10 days!

Our baby Kookaburra has been a frequent visitor and I have been able to get a little film with him/her having a go at the Kookaburra laugh........

This is my first attempt at uploading a video to my blog..... hope it works!  It's short but sweet:-)

Today our weather is unbearable!  Hot, hot, hot and HUMID,HUMID,HUMID - I can't describe what I'm wearing.... as in NOT wearing!  and the fan is on FULL BLAST!

Up in North Queensland the clean up begins.... what a terrible start to 2011 our Country is having.

Happy Sewing!!
