Another sunny weekend-day has come to an end and today I finally got stuck into some sewing! As the early afternoon rolled over, I fired up the iron, got my machine in working order (new needle, full bobbin and full thread on top), pressed all of my fabrics and begun the task of making my […]

Two Years Later…

Two years ago, on this very day, I found the guts to start writing a blog. I was nervous, unsure and a little bit scared at the thought of writing and publishing my own quilty work on the internet. But I was looking for a challenge, an expressive medium and a chance to reach out […]

Ohh….iMac!

I can hardly contain my excitement, as I am, at this very moment, writing this blog post on my new, very shiny, extremely fast, super-dooper awesome iMac! OH MY GOSH I LOVE THIS THING! Although most of the time I have no idea what I’m doing or where to find anything on the desktop, I’m […]

Hooray for the weekend!!

What a week! I’ve been so overwhelmingly busy these past few days that I’m so glad it’s the weekend! The last two days I’ve spent at the Craft & Quilt Show at Darling Harbour where I helped man our stand full of our latest issues and associated quilting products. Of course I took full advantage of […]
