I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, 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!

Yes, another mobile blog post 😀

I've been sewing most of this afternoon- made two pillowcases using the burrito method. 
Burrito pillowcase. They were very fast to sew and I didn't need to get my overlocker out!


I also finished a tea pot trivet for myself - another easy and fun project-

I'm going to do a tutorial soon on how I make these. I'm making another one now and taking photos. 

I've had another scan on my hand, will get the results tomorrow 😀. I've managed rotary cutting today with no pain. 

Some of you asked which App I'm now using for mobile blog posts - it's called Blog Touch Pro. 

Cheers from Helen


  1. You have been busy today .. lovely pillowcases and trivets...
    Did you realise you posted the blog four times??

    1. Yes, the new App is a little slow to load and I couldn't tell if the first, second and third had actually uploaded and then of course all four appeared! I deleted the other three :-)
