{ about }

I am 36 years old and married to the man who I have been with since I was 17.  We have a cheeky little 4 year boy.

My day job is in a large teaching Hospital in London, where I am a Transfusion Specialist.  I went up in the world, before blood I was a poo tester!

I only started sewing about 4.5 years ago, having not touched a sewing machine since making a lips cushion when I was 13 at school.  My first sewing project was a Mei tai baby carrier, seriously, why couldn't I have stuck with a Morsbag like normal people.

I started quilting around 3 years ago, when I took a 6 week starter class.  


  1. Lips cushion! That is hilarious. My project at the same age was a skateboard cushion - I only recently read it its last rites.

  2. I love quilting and sewing.. I'm the same as u went to a class a year ago and have been bitten by the bug.. Nice to meet u x

  3. Hi, I've only just found your blog (whilst on the hunt for some English 'sewing/quilting' blogs), you've made some wonderful stuff.

    I'm also taking Rachel's Hand stitching class, your star blossom is lovely - the Summersville looks great - I'm still on the embroidery, boooo!!
    Great blog

  4. I LOVE it that you are proving them wrong.

  5. Oh my goodness, I seriously love everything you have made! Of course you know I'm diggin' the rainbows but your bags are fab too. I've never made any kind of bag other than pouches. I have the weekender pattern and I'm wondering if thats aiming too high for a bag novice. Anyhow, just wanted to stop by and say hello and also thank you for your kind words on my work.

  6. Oh, how lovely to find an English quilting blog - and such a lovely one too.
