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!

The Gold Coast
Hi there!

MH and I have just had a few days away at the Gold Coast - sun, surf and generally doing NOTHING!  Oh well, yes..... I did take some hand sewing with me!

I have decided to work backwards on my Civil War blocks, as I am quite a few weeks behind.  So today I made the current block... # 38 OHIO STAR.  You can see a pic of it on my Civil War page and in my Flickr Site.

More sewing tomorrow:-)
