|Our wonderful eight at Naomi's wedding, June 2022|
In my single days I was a school teacher and later worked as a missions volunteer (in India and Brisbane, Australia), which is where I met the man who became my husband.
Quilting and Sewing
Creating with fabric and thread has been an satisfying constant in my life. My mother started teaching me the joys of sewing when I was three years old and in the decades following I have explored many different fields within textiles and paper crafts.
It wasn't until 2009 that my quilting adventures began. You can learn about this quilt and process here - a new passion was added to my life. You will find photos of each of my quilts and links to their details under the 'Completed Quilts' tab.
I enjoy creating a variety of quilt styles and trying different techniques. English Paper Piecing, sewn entirely by hand, is one of my favourite quilting techniques. I also love to experiment with using different fabrics and threads.
PhotographyCapturing beauty to appreciate and share has been a delight
since I owned my first camera as a child. I'm often amazed at how photography helps me to slow down, be mindful and discover extraordinary details in ordinary places.
Instagram is another of my favourite places to share and enjoy contact with others. Some of my favourite photos are available for purchase at
