I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 63, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 25. 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 , one Singer 20. one Singer 40 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!

All good!

Fred is recovering well from his op today.  He will stay in ICU until tomorrow, just to keep a watch on his heart.  I even spoke with him on the phone briefly about an hour ago and he sounded very confident that all was okay.  We will speak with the Doctor tomorrow and then we will know more.

Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful messages and prayers,
