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!

I received a lovely Siggy block recently.
Thank you Magda! It's beautiful!

My collection is quite large so I really must make another wall hanging or something!

Posting this from my phone - out having coffee 😀☕️☕️

I really must get back to blogging, having Mobile Blogger on my phone makes it much easier to post something quickly🙂 but I've been pretty terrible at updating my Blog lately - it reminds me of my school report cards "Helen must try harder"🙄🙄🙄

Cheers from Helen
