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!

My tumbler table runner -  I recently made a Half Hexagon quilt with a tumbler border (more about that next Post) and I had these tumbler units leftover...... I now have a cute table runner!

Love the back as much as the front!

I pieced this on my Singer 222 Featherweight - so enjoyable to sew on this machine.

I quilted it on my 201K as I was trialling two different walking feet..... a generic cheapie that worked okay but got stuck going over thick seams and the walking foot from The Singer Featherweight Shop (I use this one on my Featherweight)..... this one worked beautifully, sewed over the seams like butter!

Another finish too......

My Elephant quilt is up on the wall!

Happy Sewing!!
Cheers from Helen
