Hi from downunder. I hated dressmaking when younger - could never get anything made to fit me - and could never sew a straight line. But since I started patchwork 6 years ago sewing has taken on a whole new meaning and I really enjoy it.
We live in a very small country town in southern NSW (pop 200 on a good day) and travel approx 50km to do our shopping, medical etc. So it is very quiet here and patchwork provides a really relaxing, inspiring, frustrating way to spend a day. That is, when we are not looking at the hills and lakes all around us.
I love scrappy quilts - but I don't quite know yet how all those scraps seem to come about. They just seem to grow overnight.
Anyway - looking forward to meeting you all here and sharing and learning.
