About me

Industry Manufacturing
Occupation Patchwork/Stitchery Pattern Designer
Location Victoria, Australia
Introduction I'm a stitcher from way back, taught by my Mum, Grandma and Aunt. Now I'm desperately working hard to realise my dream of building a workroom - to create in, of course! But it's also for all my creative bits and pieces which have taken over the house! Need some space for when the grandchildren come to play!
Interests Patchwork, applique and quilting. I'm a Gemini with a great passion for anything creative, whether I actually take part in it or just watch and appreciate the talent of others. I have a love of colour and design and derive great satisfaction from creating something of my own. I am especially interested in quilting, applique and stitchery design. I am also a devotee of anything to do with teddy bears - as seen in my designs for quilts, wall hangings, stitcheries, bags, etc. (see website). I adore all sorts of music, except for heavy metal, hip hop, "doof doof" or rap - can't see the point of it at all! I have a love of books - there is always a literary masterpiece lying around half-read, and usually a few more in a pile somewhere waiting for their turn. I also love my garden and the birdlife it attracts. I have a wonderful family - David, (the man of the house) and two sons and daughters-in-law (Paul and Susanne, Mark and Rachael). We now have three grandchildren - Sean, Josh and Archie - all happy, contented little boys!

Favorite Books Love anything by Marian Keyes, Diana Gabaldan, Edward Rutherfurd, Barbara Erskine, Cathy Kelly, Martina Reilly, Rosamunde Pilcher, Anya Seton, in fact, I just love books! I love maps and I also adore photographic books of scenery and aerial views.
