I grew up with sewing and patchwork around me and have sewn for many years, I also knit and crochet with occasional forays into journaling. Now retired I spend all my spare time at Patchwork & Quilting. I love to design quilts and have some designs published and I also help others to learn this great pastime. I run both social and sewing groups locally and organise coach trips to quilt shows. I have a gorgeous little Shih Tzu called Honey who keeps me fit and makes me get up from my machine frequently! I am also a proud GrannyPatch to one year old Tiare.
Update. Sadly the lovely Honey died in 2015 and I now have little Holly who joined me last August. She is often poorly but a great dog with a big heart. My granddaughter is now nearly 3 years old which just shows how long it is since I've looked at this info. Not much else has changed although I have spent the past 2 months working with a group of friends to make some great Quilts for Project Linus. I really must update my photo.
