New Blog

Welcome to my craftroom and the first post of my new blog here on my wix website! If you were a subscriber to my old blog, you will still receive blog posts by email. I wasn't posting much anymore on Blogger because it was stuck on a very old template and I had to write everything in html which was very difficult for me. Now I can just plop in photos and type... YAY!

Now grab a cup of tea and join me for a tour of my bright attic studio.

It's not often I make videos and I admit that I am not a professional but I guess that is why I am a quilt pattern-maker and not a movie maker! Click on the image to view full screen on mobile. I hope you enjoy the quick peek of my craftroom...

I love the light that streams in through my huge craftroom window and I love my wall of fat quarters, but my fat quarters secretly hate the sun. I tried hanging a large curtain over the quilting cotton but I missed my eye candy! It's a good thing that I usually only need small shapes and can cut around the fade lines.

After years of having ribbon burst out of drawers in a tangled mess after re-wrapping them around various objects (clothes pins & large cardboard bobbins) for the bazillionth time, I decided to hang them. Seeing my craft supplies inspire me to create and this method of storage makes it very easy to select the perfect ribbon for my project. I will write a blog post soon describing it in more detail.

Well I hope you enjoyed the tour but now I must work on those 51 pattern designs I have on my list! I think the Leafcutter Bee Mat will be up next for Summer.

Let me know if there is anything you would like me to share here, or add to my blog or website that may be missing. I am working on adding a Published Patterns page. In the meantime, you can read 11 years of posts on MY OLD BLOG.


Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts,

I love the color of the walls in your creative space. I was wonderings, if you ever sell some fabric you use or ever will sometime in the future? Love your fabric and your unique designs. Thank you for posting. Its inspirational to me.

Thank you so much for the lovely comment. I'm in a new space and the walls are more of mint ice cream now. I sold half of my fabric 3 years ago when we moved so what I have left are all my favourites and will not be parting with any more. :)

Hi Nancy, There is no Hollyhock pattern yet. It was a small quilt that I made for a quilt swap in my quilt guild in 2014. I never intended to make it into a pattern but there has been interest lately so now it is on my lengthy list of designs to turn into a pattern. Subscribe to my mailing list to be notified when new patterns are released. Thank you!
