I’ve set myself the task of finishing 8 Quilts by 31 December 2019. Admittedly they are small pieces, because of this I am hand quilting them. This makes them portable and easy to take to the ‘in real life’ quilt group I’ve joined. ‘Stitchers’ in Herne Hill are very welcoming ! I’ve also joined anContinue reading “Yes I Can”

There was temporary change when I fractured my arm, which thankfully has healed and now a permanent change is upon me- I’m saying goodbye to the lovely space that has been home to my art making and moving toContinue reading “All Change!”
