Welcome to my new blog!

Today,my son Nick has helped me set up this blog. I am hoping that it will keep me in touch with all my quilting friends and ex students as well as being able to let you all know what I am currently up to and what may be going on around the quilting world.

Firstly I would like to thank you for the many cards and gifts received over the past weeks prior to my taking a rest from teaching. You have been very understanding with regard to my reasons and I am now looking forward to being able to take some time out to explore some new ideas and spend some time travelling.

I have already been 'booked' by my new daughter-in-law to make her a glamorous outfit for a very 'posh' wedding in August and I am thrilled at the prospect. Let us hope that it lives up to both our expectations.

At the moment I am working very hard to finish a small quilt for the Quilters' Guild challenge at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham in August. I shall also be displaying a crib quilt ('Lullay my Liking') in the 'Traditional' category and a child's dress ('Rosa') in the 'Quilt Creations' category. I know a lot of you will be taking coach trips to Birmingham and I shall look forward to seeing you there on either the Saturday or Sunday.

I shall be travelling down to Sandown Park for the National Quilt Championships in two weeks time and am hoping to be able to congratulate Sue Sidle on her excellent Hoffman Challenge entry. This year's challenge fabric was very challenging indeed but Sue had no difficulty in using it to full effect. I am hoping that she will improve on last year's Runners Up prize.

I shall be writing bits and pieces on here from time to time so if you are interested keep looking.

Until next time, happy quilting,
