About me

Gender Female
Occupation Retired Orchardist
Location Te Puna, Tauranga BOP, New Zealand
Introduction Quilting is a wonderful hobby for me. I love the beautiful fabric and colours - my artistic side comes alive. I have lived in Te Puna near Tauranga since 1978. Recently retired after 40 years working on our own small orchard where we grew Kiwifruit and Avocados for export. We have a large garden and grow many fruit, nuts, vegetables and flowers.Our new property runs down to an estuary.. When I was young I was a teacher and particularly liked teaching art. I have also worked in the Kiwifruit Industry in Quality Control and Auditing. I love to create and am currently passionate about patchwork and quilting. I sew by hand and using my Bernina Aurora 440 machine. * All photos enlarge by clicking. * PLEASE do not use my photos or words without my permission.
