Living in Western Australia (one of the most remote parts of the planet, or at least Perth city is one of the most remote cities – but remote from where I ask?) I was born in Engand but came to W.A. as a child.
I’m a creative patchworker, typically have too many projects on the go, but delight in both piecing and free-motion quilting. I made my first quilt in 2000 after taking a starter class from a shop (that no longer exists). I’ve continued to be self taught, usually doing one quilt with hand quilting per year. The others are usually machine pieced and quilted. I’m approaching my first 100 quilts – from doll size through to queen size.
I’m in the second half century of life, still with my life long partner, have 2 adult sons living on the other side of the world (ie one in Europe and one soon to be Canada).
My other mainstay is a small white furry companion/shadow, a Jack Russell cross, who when she’s not squeaking in delighted anticipation of a walk simply dozes on her bed and watches every move I make!
