Its Halloween today not that we celebrate it in Australia.

For those that think that the date and time of the post was off. Well it was by months but anyhow it does not matter.

It is actually October 2010 and my welcome post was posted on Halloween even though I started it in March. It comes of being a busy mother of two children under 4 years.

Until next time

Welcome to my Blog

Hello fellow craft lovers,

This is my first time writing on my blog and I have always been fascinated with how many people actually follow their favourite quilter, patchwork, applique or stitchery designer as they develop new projects for their avid fans.

I discovered the dreaded patchwork and quilting addiction in 2005 with of all people my mum (who has also found the quilting bug). I love machine pieced quilts, applique both blanket stitch and needleturn, stitcheries and english paper piecing. I consider myself to be eclectic in my material stash but love 1800 reproduction fabrics and patterns. I also have a love of cross stitch which I rediscover during my lull periods when I want to give patchwork a little breather and I'm a knitter.

In recent times, I have started putting some pen to paper and have been creating some of my own designs. I would love to show you but they are very draft stage at the moment, so who knows what will appear on the pages.

I have added some of my favourite blog sites so feel free to have a look if you are not already an avid follower.

I am busily trying to finalise some Christmas projects for the upcoming festive season. I will add photos shortly so show my progress.

Until next time, happy crafting.
