I can't believe that it's been 3 weeks since I last posted to my blog! May has flown by. New "Limited Edition" quilt patterns and kits have been designed and packaged up. The Parksville Quilt Show has come and gone, And on Monday Joan and I fly to Halifax for Quilt Canada. So we are down to the wire, having sent most of our wares off in boxes ahead of us, and now we're packing up the rest in our suitcases. Must remember to leave a little room for a couple of changes of clothing and other essentials! Oh, and yesterday our daughter Emily was awarded her doctorate - the culmination of many, many years of study and a day of celebration for all the family. And our grand-daughter is still growing by leaps and bounds - a wonderfully social and happy baby - and my husband returned from 4 months in Uganda. The photos tell the story better than I can.
I am a textile artist and quiltmaker, a teacher and a writer. I have been playing with fabric for over 30 years, the last 15 of which have been spent creating original work and teaching design-based classes. I have a deep connection with the women of Africa, and since 2007 have spent part of each year teaching sewing and quilting to women in Uganda.
