A little girl had been born to one of my father in law's dearest friend's son. I ordered my fabric from overseas and within the week the fabric had arrived. With very little time before the party to introduce the baby to everyone I decided to just sew simple strips of colours into a cot quilt.
I'm just an ordinary working Mum who likes to do things. I am not really good at relaxing quietly so I tend to be making things all the time. I love the feel and colour of textiles and have tried my hand at tapestry weaving, knitting, stumpwork, embroidery - wool, ribbon and silk, lace making, mosaics, hardanger, crewel, and quilting. The quilting has only come about in the last few years as it is much kinder to my hands and I can work on it for longer periods than the embroidering.
