I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 61, 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. 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!

PLANT YOUR POPPY

Remembrance Day is this Sunday.....  I have planted a poppy in the virtual poppy field in memory of my Dad...   you can check it out here    .....  if you click on Find a Poppy and enter either of my email addresses, you will see a blinking poppy (look hard, it's a yellow blink over the poppy).  Click on the blinking poppy and you will see a photo of my Dad.



The quilt I donated to Dads RSL Hall
