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!

Yes yes, I know.....    where have I been!!     Well, like the song says... I've been on a Summer Holiday - except mine was 1 1/2 days, but lovely all the same!   I've been up to Bribie Island to visit with my sister and we had a great weekend.  Yes, went swimming and walking on the beach - it was just lovely.  Today is the last day of Summer so a beach weekend was called for!

I have a bit of blog homework to do.... recently I was awarded a STYLISH BLOGGER award from FLYING BLIND ON A ROCKET CYCLE!

Thank you Flying Blind!!!!   The rules of the game are that I have to tell you 7 things about myself.... well, I have already shared quite a number of "things about me" on my PAGE "MORE ABOUT ME" so I will have to add another 7 items!!  Not right now though as I'm just getting dinner on the stove and I have to collect teenage son from tennis.... so check back in here later!!  ....this will give me time to invent something!!   :-)

Also, I have a Civil War Quilt block to catch up with!  I'll be busy in the sewing room tonight!!

Back Soon,


  1. I had indeed wondered where you were! Great to have you back- and congrats on the award! Not an Oscar, but still an achievement!

  2. Walking on the beach is a wonerful holiday even if it is only for a few days....
