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!

LET'S DO BURRITOS

Hello! 

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. 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 :-)
