February 4th

Has your year started with a BANG! or is it just me?

I can’t believe it’s February already and the majority of my News Year’s resolutions are still to be worked on!  The first of these resolutions was to get my website up and running and to start writing a regular blog…well, here we go!…Maybe I can put half a tick next to those 2!

I’ve never been one to write a journal.  Private thoughts always seemed to be just that, private, and the idea of someone else reading them was invasive.  But the world changes, technology has revolutionised some of the ways we communicate, and there is so much fabulous quilting “stuff” out there that I’d just love to share.

I hope that over time I’ll be able to introduce some new quilting and creative ideas to you…something to inspire you and tip you from your comfortable chair by the TV to your sewing space!

Like I said, the year has got off to a bang for me, but I have quilted some great quilts for customers already.  I specialise in custom quilting so here are a few pictures of the quilts I’ve had the privilege of working on over the last few weeks.

I’ve been quilting for customers for about 3 and a half years and now I have discovered a wonderful thing…if I trust myself, I to can come up with some really great designs for my customers.  I may not consider myself even close to an expert, but each quilt shows growth in my ability and I love every minute.  Luckily, my customers keep coming back with more quilt tops to help me continue improving.

I really hope that you will come back from time to time to see what I’m working on and that you too will be inspired to step outside of your comfort zone and fall in love with quilting!
