About Me

My photo
I retired on March 11th 2014 after 26 years as a doctors receptionist. I am now looking forward to the freedom to enjoy my days doing anything I wish to. Spending time with family, catching up with friends. Playing in my Scrappy Shack, scrapbooking, cardmaking, art journalling, quilting, gardening, baking. Spending wonderful times with my beloved other half. I am so looking forward to this time in my life.

Look What I Made.....

My first patchwork ever!! 

I went to a class today and this is what I produced. My first ever piece of patchwork.
With help and advice from the lovely Ella at  "Sew Simple" up at Lady Heyes.
I was not looking forward to the class to be honest, trying to get to know my new sewing machine was quite stressful and me and the bobbin did not get on at all!! The last time I sewed a seam I was 15 and hated needlework class at school.

But now I am very, very happy and I now know I am about to embark on yey another addiction.
All because I wanted to make something for LillBo Quilts, I did not realise what I was letting myself in for.Now I know I can have a lot of joyful satisfaction.
