I discovered the quilting blogging world by 'Googling' information to help me start some simple patchwork projects. This led to me 'lurking' before I discovered how Blogger worked. I look forward to each new post and it is fun to comment on people's makes. This though, has increasingly been making me feel as if this is a one way relationship. I now feel that my sewing is getting better and I can now share my sewing without feeling embarrassed!
My passion for sewing and quilting was re-ignited just under a year ago due to having more free time and being almost housebound during a couple of snowy weeks when it was difficult to get out of the village. I am now well and truly bitten by the quilting bug.
I look back on my first few makes with a benevolent smile. Some were pretty shabby but some were ok. I started by making bags...lots of bags that were in constant use last summer.
More importantly, I can look back at those early makes and know that I have improved. This is the second reason as to why I want to blog - I want a record of my sewing progress.
Last September I joined in with Sarah from FairyFace Designs and Jennifer from Ellison Lane Quilts for the 'Across the Sea' Quilt-along. I was captivated by the idea of making the same project with others, even though we never actually meet in person.

So please join me on my sewing journey...
