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!

Thank you Martina and Ulrike!  Lovely Siggy Blocks to add to my collection. 

Our ridiculously warm and humid weather continues but I've managed a little sewing. 
I'm getting my Easter shirts done - long sleeve this year as Easter falls later in April. 

Birthday package on its way to Maisy and Amos today- 


This weekend we are going to an Antiques and Collectibles Fair- I wonder what treasures I will find this time?

Happy Sewing!
Cheers from Helen
