Hi to everyone,

I've been learning patchwork and quilting for just over a year now and I am excited and obsessed already.
I am fascinated by the power of colour combinations, tone and texture. I like to draw and paint and this helps I think with the visualisation of designs in my head before they make it to paper. I'm full of ideas, but don't have the level of expertise to know how to achieve all my designs.
This Summer I have just completed my level 2 City and Guilds Appliqué course with Sara Cook (who was fabulous); I made a Magpie wall hanging using some of the techniques we learnt on the course.
I am also interested in web design and I am currently working on my Wordpress skills, not to mention getting my teeth into photoshop. My interests I hope will complement my sewing. I find it hard to walk down a street or look at any familiar object without seeing shapes and tones. The future is in pieces!
