Penny Killow

Hello I live in north Derbyshire with my husband, moved a couple of years ago from Warwickshire. I have enjoyed patchwork and quilting for many years and then in 2008 I decided to do the P&Q City & Guilds. Made some good friends and improved the variety and quality of my skills. I would not say I am an expert in any shape or form but I have learned to unpick more often than I used to and there are days my work doesn't look too rustic????.
I love my garden and my Ridgeback called Henna who loves to chase squirrels and take over the sofa.
I work full time in a job that can be stressful so I love what sewing and gardening give me in regards to creativity and allow my mind to focus on positive distractions.
In 2020 myself and a close group of school friends turned 50 and we had lots of fun plans that have been put on hold. So I saved money to spend on fun outings, projects and generally living a full life.
