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!

Love this half hexagon quilt - cut on my Go Cutter
I had so much fabric that I just had to cut it up into a project
I decided to add a border of tumblers too!

This is the next one to be quilted on my Sweet Sixteen

and just because....... two new ironing board covers!

I use a lot of spray starch - on quilting projects and on vintage linens that I use around my home, so I'm pretty hard on ironing board covers - the last one I washed just disintegrated!

So by now you have probably guessed I'm trying to catch you all up with what I've been sewing lately!  I don't like to start a Blog Post with the line "sorry it's been so long since I posted....." - life gets in the way and as I have said before, I do Post to Facebook often just not to Blogger.  I wish Facebook had a share button to Blogger!

Happy Sewing!!
Cheers from Helen
