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!

Testing mobile blogging…….

Cheers from Helen

wow!  it worked!    I've been really slack in posting on my Blog lately and sometimes when I do have time or something interesting to say, I'm out and about.  So I wanted to see if I could set this up for Email blogging and it has worked… woohoo :-)

I will now attempt to send a post from my phone…….


  1. How clever are you.. I still haven't worked out how to blog on my iPad...
