Hi there, as a child I learnt how to make hexagons and put them together, both my gran and Mum were keen sewers. Work, a daughter then a dog and life in general got in the way of sewing until retirement when I got back to patchwork and quilting. I joined three quilt groups with a close neighbour and friend and have been havinga wonderful time since. My Husband says what with quilt groups, shows and shopping trips for fabric he hardly ever sees me - perhaps I should quilt a picture of myself and hang it up in the front room! I admire immensely the skill and talent of the quilters and embroiderers but find that I enjoy making something colourful loud and/or quirky.
