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!

Sewing the binding down on my "vine" quilt .... Seems to go on forever!

Warm weather so not as pleasant to be working on a quilt ... Could be rain coming- hope so !  Our hill is do dry, it looks terrible.

We are out enjoying a coffee at Kitty and the Bean..  Off home soon to sew!

Happy sewing!
Cheers from Helen

  1. It always seems to take so long to hand sew the binding down.

    I love your cute peekaboo quilt!
