I live in England, I’m married, and I have two daughters. I’m “not from around here”, as they say locally…originally from Texas, USA, but have lived here for many years with my lovely English husband.
My mother always sewed, and she taught me how to make my own clothes when I was in the 8th grade. I became interested in quilting in 1993 when I took a beginner’s class at a little local quilt shop. In the years since, I mostly collected fabric and patterns and started projects that never got finished.
A few years ago, I decided to try and change my ways, and I started a blog to use as a quilt journal about my UFOs. However, I find that I am still easily tempted and distracted by the latest patterns and techniques, so now I’m keeping track of my new projects as well as my unfinished ones. I also like to write about the sewing machines in our family collection. My two daughters sew now and have their own machines.
Happy Quilting, and thanks for visiting me! 🙂
