Winding up the website

As indicated in my previous post, the time has come to close my website. This will be my final post. I still have a number of quilts, in particular the two lovely queen-size ones which, although expensive, represent months of work at around 90 cents per hour. There are simple, smaller quilts which would make…

Back in Action

After something of a hiatus, I’ve been sewing again — hand-stitching in front of TV in the evenings and machine-sewing when I can. Winter weather and the thought that while charities are calling out for blankets, quilts would also be welcomed. So now I have a line-up of quilt tops, all ready to be pinned…

Update on the Quiltless Traveller

Hello, Kirsten again, back with a quick update on Mum. I don’t know how, but our traveller patient has survived her hospital stay, with not a lot to amuse her actually.

Tomorrow afternoon my husband and I are flying out of Sydney for a tour of Turkey, with several extra days to ourselves in Istanbul. Very excited about finally…

Clearing the Shelves

Sadly, I have discovered that my year-old shoulder replacement will not allow me to finish off my quilts with any free-motion quilting — and it makes pinning the three layers together very difficult also. With the help of friends, I will be able to complete the quilts already in the pipeline, but after that it…

Eden Memories

My sister, Jenny, was a talented quilt maker and needlewoman and I have several beautiful embroidered items she made over the years. When visiting her in Eden on the far south coast of New South Wales, I slept many times under a lovely quilt made in her favourite colour, purple. I drew up the two…
