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!

NEWFO # 3

Firstly, I think I've fixed the photo debacle!!  I have no idea what happened, how it happened or why it happened but I have replaced the missing photos but didn't add the captions that may have been there before.  If you happen to be reading older posts on my blog and notice photos missing, please let me know:-)    Thanks!

Now onto my Newfo project for March.
Newfo # 3

I've been reading all about the Scrappy Trip Around The World quilt that EVERYONE seems to be making, so I've jumped on the bandwagon and will begin kitting up my quilt....


SOME OF THE STRIPS I HAVE ALREADY CUT
2-1/2" WIDTH
quickly snapped with my PhotoBooth, sorry about flash!
The pattern and fabric strips will go into this little pouch.


So that is my Newfo # 3 - March.  Linking up with Cat Patches ..  head on over to see all of the other Newfo's!!
Happy Sewing!!
Helen
