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!

Thanks to a fellow Blogger, I've been able to go back in to my photos I have used in my Blog and add a Watermark.  I do add a watermark sometimes when I publish photos but often I'm in a hurry and forget to do so.  I'm working through thousands of photos so I won't put a Watermark on each and every one of them but I'm adding a few every day.

I found the tutorial HERE - very easy to set up and start adding your own Watermark!

As I've been going through these photos, it's amazing just how many "things" I have made over the years!  as Christmas is fast approaching, I thought I would link back to some of the gifts I have made....
