I was asked by the lovely Moira to join in on the Around the World blog hop and as she is so lovely, who was I to refuse.....
So I'm going to start by admitting that I always find it really awkward answering questions like these. I try to leave the brain burning stuff for the days I'm getting paid for it at work, so I am going to keep it short and sweet ;-)
- What am I working on?
I have a few projects on the go at the minute, the first is my mini for the IGmini swap...
I was admiring Karie's churn dashes and had an urge to make a goosey version, as you do! I'm currently contemplating my quilting options.
The second project is a plus quilt packed full of Cotton + Steel fabrics....
I only finished piecing it yesterday, so haven't thought about backing fabric and quilting yet.
- How does my work differ from others in it's genre?
Well unless you count my obsessive need to include geese and rainbows in every project, I don't think it does!? I don't want to be a trend setter and I don't mind being part of a crowd. I make what I make, because it makes me happy.
- Why do I write/create what I do?
I think I probably answered this with my last sentence above. A lot of my projects lately have been challenges to myself to see if I could make it. I like to shrink blocks to stupid sizes just to see if I can put them together without them looking like a dogs dinner. I would say I am successful about 50% of the time and I'm good with that.

My geese patterns came about because I love geese circles, but I hate piecing curves. I wanted a lazy girl way of doing it. In general what I create will always depend on how hard it is and how long it will take. I go for the easy option, well almost always, the Ikea quilt being the exception with it's trillions of HSTs! ;-)
- How does my creative process work?
I have asked the lovely Amy to take part in the blog hop next week. I love her work and am lucky enough to include her as a real life good friend.
