I am new to quilting. As I am no longer able to continue with hand embroidery to the same degree my crafting journey has included learning free motion embroidery, using fabric and paint to create backgrounds. Last December I was very fortunate to attend a work shop in Chichester with the brilliant Sophie Standing, fabric collage with machine stitching.

I have attempted to make a quilt, building the blocks I enjoyed putting the quilt together I did not (I did not keep the unfinished project, sacrilege I know but I could not keep the reminder of my failure), hence my interest in miniature quilts. At various fairs I have purchased a number of patterns which will hopefully help me learn the skills required.

My fabric stash continues to grow, it is very difficult not to enter a fabric store.

At home we have two dogs, a Sprocker and a Labrador Retriever.
