I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 63, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 24. 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 and one Singer 20 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!

Christmas sewing

Working my way around the little cars.  I have already finished the ditch quilting down all of the rows and around the white box with the cars, now I'm doing the free-motion quilting around each car.

It's slow going, three down with nine to go!

Happy sewing,
