About me

Occupation Home maker - country style
Location Near Tavistock, Devon, United Kingdom
Introduction Apart from when the kids are visiting from their hectic London lives, I am never happier than when sat at a sewing machine. I love making quilts as wedding gifts, 21st's, babies, special birthdays - in fact as long as someone shows enthusiasm for owning something totally unique I am happy to make. A cross-stitch sampler, or a quilt is a gift made with love - and there is nothing more precious than the time it takes. There is so much gorgeous fabric out there for inspiration, and sampler patterns too. No excuse for idle hands! I love living in Devon - I have a wonderful view from my studio across the River Tamar into Cornwall. It is a view that inspires. I travel back to Cobham in Surrey often as I lived there for 20 years and still have many friends whom I love to see. I am truely blessed.
Interests Quilting, cross stitch, making, giving, sewing. And my 3 children, now adults, are a constant source of surprise and delight.
Favorite Movies I love putting a well loved film on the DVD whilst I am sewing - films like "How to make an American Quilt", "Titanic" and TV series like "Brideshead Revisited" and "The Thorn Birds" - all these I have played so often that I don't need to watch, I just listen as I sew. Very theraputic.
Favorite Music I listen to Classic FM whilst sewing - wonderful variety and so up-lifting.
Favorite Books Apart from all the obvious quilting books, I love Country Decorating style, and novels by Marcia Willett, Rosamond Pilcher and Penny Vincenzi.
