Red Monstera - Finished!
I finally got the time to finish 'Red Monstera'. I originally wanted to do straight line quilting over the whole quilt. But once I started I realised that the windows in the quilt would all recede. So I changed tactics and quilted around the window frames s...

Quilt marathon ... we've all been there!
Spent 12 hours quilting my second piece for the Quilt Show this weekend.  I should have got onto it a lot sooner ... but I underestimated how long it would take. Almost fatal. I'll be much better prepared next time. I started this quilt, called 'Litmus Pape...

Weekend socks
I found this http://www.canadianliving.com/crafts/knitting/knitting_pattern_weekend_socks_2.php  pattern to knit socks of all things. I say 'of all things' because I'm not a knitter, and the best knitter I ever knew (my darling mum) never knitted socks to m...

First modern quilt

Red Monster - a quilt in progress

A new book to relish
I love using my iPad to browse the Internet, and especially to look at the work of sister quilt bloggers and designers, but sometimes only a book will do. I am a voracious reader of all kinds of books, and I love the feel of a book in my hand. Bookshops are...

Finally ... A blog gets off the ground
I've been promising myself that I would start a blog for the last 18 months - since I retired and remarried in fact - and couldn't figure out how to do it. Sad for someone that worked in engineering and computing, hey?  Anyway, on holiday in Brisbane at the...

Quilting and sewing keep me sane!
Introduction
I retired in March 2013. With more time to do the things I love, like sewing, I unearthed a few UFOs and, lo and behold, I was hooked back into quilting again! I first started quilting in 2004. I don't have records of the many quilts I made and gave away between 2004 and 2010 when I stopped quilting. In fact I don't have a quilt of my own at all! I'm moving more towards art quilts and modern quilts, but really I love all types of quilts and quilt designs.
