Happy News and New business

Hi everyone.
Gosh it has been ages since I updated. The major reason for that is my son being at home this year doing an online course. I NEVER get near the computer when he is home. He is out helping his grandfather today, and earning himself some cash so I jumped on.

The other reason is that I have been super busy with my new business venture ... I started quilting for other people. It has had me working hard every day and I'm earning some much needed cash too. Everyone I've completed quilts for has been happy which is a great relief as I was very worried about pleasing people. I've had lots of repeat business, so I must be doing a good job.

And my last bit of good news is that my quilt (pictured in the previous post) Art Deco Hats received 6 viewer's choice awards at the Springwood quilt show. I am delighted. I've never had ANY awards before. Of course 6 is no where near enough to win you a prize. But I am just stoked that 6 people though my quilt was good enough to rate best in their opinion.

Well I'd better get cracking now. I have four quilts lined up to get done, one on the frame, and a magazine project due in tomorrow.

Busy, busy, busy.

Let's hope the next update comes much sooner!


  1. That's awesome that you are able to sell your quilts. It's also amazing that you won 6 prizes.

  2. Good luck with your new business......that's great you have had repeat customers. Your art deco hats quilt was gorgeous, I'm not surprised it received so many awards. Hope you can post some pics so we can all see your wonderful work!
