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!

My Niece sent me this photo of our Maisy playing on the Farm quilt.  Too cute!

Wet and cold here so I'm rugged up under one of my quilts and watching the Rugby League on tv - it's too cold to sew!

I'm just waiting for the NewFo linky to post over at Cat Patches - as soon as it is up I will show you some recent sewing!  I think it should be up tomorrow or the next day,

Lucky me!  I won the Needle Nanny last month for my NewFo # 5 - another farm quilt in the works.

Time to set the fire I think!

Happy Sewing,


  1. very cute Helen.xx

  2. Isn't it lovely to see a quilt you've made being used and loved.

  3. Well we have warm sun AT LAST, so only fair you get some of the chilly stuff xxx
