The Red Boots Club

One of the greatest pleasures I have is seeing the quilts and toys you have made using my patterns. I’ve been toying (no pun intended LOL) with the idea of having a ‘Red Boots Club’ for some time, but I haven’t quite worked out how to do it, or whether you would be interested.

Let me know what you think, and any suggestions on how we could run it. xx

A big thank you to Debbie, Sonia, Shelley, Dawna, Sue, Lois, Margaret, Kylie, Anthea, Terri, Kirsten, Janet, Michelle, Kate, Tarnyia, Sio, Elaine, Jo, Wendy, Martha, Fiona, Vicki, and Jenny for sharing their photos with me. I will draw a name from the Red Boots hat and send you a gift in the post.

Lost in Space

Hi y’all,

I’m feeling a little lost this week (when it comes to what to do next). I have plenty of ideas and suggestions to work with but I’m feeling a little ambivalent towards all things made from fabric.

I think I need a hobby, something that is creative but not related to quilting. I would love to learn how to make cheese, to grow vines and olive trees and spend my days working with my hands in the sun. But that’s my retirement plan, so until then I need a hobby.

In the meantime I’m staring at my sketch book waiting for the next quilt to leap off the page and catch my imagination.

I wish it would hurry up! xx

Just keep swimming…

with the mermaids.

That title could apply to us too. Our hot water system dumped 315 litres of hot water all over the laundry floor yesterday… eeeek! $3000 later…

mmaid hairHenry has finally arrived! All orders and prizes will be sent out tomorrow. Henry will be in the Etsy store this weekend. Hopefully the mermaid pattern will be too, but no promises. xx
