Hello! I have been a keen sewer all my life and enjoyed making clothes for myself when I was in my teens and twenties. I am a great fan of Laura Ashley and have made two hexagon EPP quilts where her vintage fabrics, from the 1970s and 80s, feature. One I hand quilted, the other was machine quilted professionally. They took decades to complete!
Since completing a Masters Degree in Education last summer I have more free time and have been working on the stash.
I am due to retire from teaching maths at a FE college this summer and am looking forward to expanding my quilting skills and knowledge.
I also enjoy cross stitch and walking on Dartmoor and other similar places. I like swimming and Pilates. I am a member of my local church. I have recently retired as a school governor.
