I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 61, 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. 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!

SWEET SIXTEEN SEWING AT LAST!

I FINALLY HAD A PLAY ON MY SWEET SIXTEEN!
LOVE IT!

Although I've had my Sweet Sixteen since mid October, I haven't had a play on it as I had fractured my left hand just before the machine was delivered.  I did a very small project to start off with as I still need to be careful with my hand.  This is the front pocket for the Reading pillow.........

READING PILLOW - BIRTHDAY GIFT
CHALKBOARD ROLL FOR THE BIRTHDAY GIRL'S LITTLE BROTHER

Reading Pillows are a quick and easy project..... perfect for little readers.  The Chalkboard Roll is one of my "go to" presents for toddlers and pre-schoolers.  I have linked to a version similar to the one I make.  I don't add the chalk pocket.


EASTER SEWING - A TEE SHIRT OF COURSE!

As I need some hand sewing I have started my Easter gifts.  This little rabbit is just so cute and worked up very quickly.  

Brisbane continues to suffer terribly hot and humid weather so not a great deal of sewing to report I'm afraid.  Hoping things cool down in a few weeks but it looks like most of February will be hot.

Happy Sewing!
Cheers from Helen
