She who shall remain nameless should be very pleased about this.  I’ve been to Bribbaree and back, to Byron Bay and back and to Ballan and back!  Busy as ever – so finding time to make blog posts gets a tad difficult, but I shouldn’t complain – have to keep that HUGE audience happy! My […]

So where does the time go?  They say that as you get older time flies, but this is ridiculous.  Its already February and soon it will be Christmas – well……… sometime soon. I had a great workshop at Yangery Cottage Quilts over the last weekend – for those that don’t know Yangery is just outside […]

I taught at my first summer school!!!  This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long long long time.  A few months ago I read Karen’s blog where she mentioned summer school and thought “I’d love to do that”.  The next week Karen called and started talking about summer school and was in the […]
