I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 23. 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, two Essex and one Singer 20. 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!

A little hand sewing

Hello!

Checking in on this warm Wednesday. Enjoying a yummy Vietnamese coffee and catching up on my hand sewing. 


Yes ANOTHER farm quilt !  Making this one without the fusible PELLON on the back - not sure I like stitching without it. 

I've been working on a Teddy Quilt for my ODIBAG (one day I'll be a grandmother) stash ....


Up to the borders.  Sewing this one on my Featherweight 222K - and loving it :-)

Heading in to Town later for my skin cancer check up and then home for more sewing!

Cheers!
Helen
