Getting to know "me"

 I have had a very exciting December, My profile was published in the latest edition of Patchwork and stitching Vol 14 no 12 along with my newest design. I was thrilled to be asked  to do this and I was very nervous writing about myself but the article came out so good. The photos are fantastic and I love seeing my quilts and projects in print.

 Some of the projects you see on the pages will be published in future issues of the magazine. I hope you like them.

 These stitcheries are my newest designs and I am so pleased with how they turned out, the pattern is in the magazine . I loved making these. I used wooden buttons  as part of the design and  they really make the scene come alive.


Look out for my pin cushions design in a future issue, I think they are so sweet and would make a wonderful gift for a quilter or make them for yourself.

I am spending most of the christmas holidays working on my newest design, it involves lots of hexagons. I can't wait to show you more.

I hope you all had a joyous christmas, ours was lovely, my inlaws came over from Victoria and stayed for 2 weeks. We all had a great time with them.

I have so many beautiful christmas gifts to show you so I shall be back in a few days .


Happy New Year.
