I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 23. 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, two Essex and one Singer 20. 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!

To the tune of "Wishing and Hoping" ...   I don't know why, but as soon as I typed the title for this post, this song came zooming into my head!  so I just had to embed a video of the great Dusty.... hope you enjoy!

The quilt is indeed Pinned and is now sitting beside the sewing machine waiting for its' turn to be quilted!

  2. Wishing and a-hoping your quilting and a-binding is going smoothly and harmoniously!
