My first love has always been textiles. I learned to sew on my mum’s old singer treadle machine before I was big enough to sit and pedal. My dolls were always dressed in my creations. Mum made our clothes and I followed on for a long time until life got too busy and shop bought was more convenient. But the love of beautiful fabric and creating continues. I tried quilting but found that was too constricting. I could never get the corners to match. But then I came upon Judith Baker Montano and her gorgeous embellished and embroidered crazy quilts which I still enjoy and have projects I pick up from time to time. I have also had great fun creating cloth dolls. So I will lead you down this path with some of my creations.
