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!

Yummy, another Hot Cross Bun

Hot Cross Bun

I wanted to play some more with my Singer 201K, so whipped up another Hot Cross Bun block, using the same fabrics I used for my Civil War block # 24 Ladies' Aid Album.  I'm making these Hot Cross Bun blocks to use up the scraps leftover from making the Civil War blocks..... you can see that I had to join two pieces for the top left red square, so I'm REALLY using up my scraps!!  

To see more of my Hot Cross Bun blocks, go to my Flickr site.

Okay, time for bed!

Happy Sewing!!
