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 purchased a new App so I can blog from my phone. My old App kept dropping out and losing the post.  So this is a test 🙂

Today I've finally managed some machine sewing 😍


I have a doctors appointment on Monday to check my hand. I'm hoping the splint can stay off 🙂. I have sewing I really want to do!

Cheers from Helen
