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 received a lovely Siggy yesterday....    THANK YOU    Simonetta from Grado in Italy.   Simonetta is very new to the Siggy swap and has been learning patchwork for about a year.    Perhaps some of my Followers who are also in the Siggy swap would like to send Simonetta their Siggy block.  Her name is not on the list from Annelies as yet, but should be on the next one.

Today is much better weatherwise than the past week -  thank heavens!  but I have started the day with a headache so not a lot of sewing being accomplished.  However, I did FEEL like sewing, so whipped up another little Hot Cross Bun block.

My Keep Movin' quilt blocks have all been blanket stitched, now I have to put the ric rac road on the car and truck blocks and then I can start putting the whole top together!

Chubby Chicks blocks are now getting their Eye stitched, and then I will also be ready to piece the pinwheel blocks.  I can see a "finish" for 2011 on the horizon!


Happy Sewing!!

  1. Isn't it funny that we can sew with a headache when we can't manage anything else? Hope you're feeling better.
