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!

MH and I are heading up to Elliott Heads tomorrow  -   just for a few days R & R  -   see you when I get back!

I've always loved this scene from Here to Eternity...
and NO, I don't think MH and I will be rolling
around in the surf like this!!  a nice
long stroll on the sand will be good enough
for me:-))


  1. Have a great vacation. Love the bag from your previous post!

  2. Have fun. Im going to be imagining you rolling round getting sand in your togs now...

  3. Hope you have a lovely time Helen!

  4. Hi Helen, my name is Jo and am also making the Civil War BOW, that's how I hopped on to your blog and there on your sidebar about the Siggy blocks... is a block from Helma... she is my cousin's daughter in the Netherlands. I love this quilting world!
    Have a great vacation!
