About Me

I started stitching a few years ago thanks to a very dear friend. She has encouraged and taught me so much. I am the Mum of three great kids who I love dearly. I love to stitch in my spare time and even though I am a newbie I enjoy it very much.

New Recruit

 Yesterday I headed off to Rainbow Patchwork for some retail therapy & my two girls wanted to tag along. After browsing for a while my 11 year old decided she just had to have one of the Moda Jelly Rolls. So home we came and she asked for some help ...."How would you put the colours together Mum" So I kindly offered a few suggestions only to get Yuck Mum I am doing it like this. At 6am this morning she wandered in to my bedroom to let me know she was going to borrow my sewing machine for a little while. So after all day at my machine and the only help she has asked for has been the iron & she has put all her strips together.

The colours are a little bright for me but they are definately her. So all in all a very successful day. I couldnt get near my machine but that is okay as it has made me have a go at the swap project for GDITC. I dont think I will be able to make one good enough to swap but that is what we are going to learn. Getting very excited not long now. Have a great week everyone.


  1. Oh so clever!. And good on you for letting her try.

  2. your daughter did very well.........

  3. Yum Yum... nearly look good enough to eat :)

  4. She did a great job! Had a great weekend at Nundle, it was lovely to meet you. I never did swap my pincushion, not happy with it and will never do an apple core one again!!! Glad I learnt clamshells though!
