Around the world blog hop

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by Lou if I wanted to take part in this blog hop. Naturally I said yes as I thought it would be a good opportunity to dust off the old blog, cos let's face it, it's been a while!

What am I working on?

Right now I've just finished 2 big quilts that have been wip's for over a year each. So instead of taking a well earned break, I've started the baby quilt by Katy (I'm a ginger monkey) featured in issue 2 of quilt now magazine. The blocks are all done and the first row sewn together. It'll get finished on Wednesday ready for gifting on Thursday. (last minute much?)

I'm also being kept busy being a swap momma on the IG Mini Swap as well as trying to stalk my partner as a swapee!

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I'm not sure it does to be honest. Obviously we all have colours, designs and designers we all prefer and that is reflected in my work. I'm not one for jumping on a bandwagon just because everyone else is but if I like something then count me in!

Why do I create what I do?

Because it makes me happy. Simple as that. Since starting this crazy quilting journey just over 2 years ago I've become part of an amazing online community, made some fantastic friends and been exposed to some fantastic opportunities.

How does my creating process work?

Along the lines of, this is awesome, this is tricky, this is shit, I'm shit, actually this might be okay, this is awesome!

Seriously though, I find my best ideas come as I'm trying to get to sleep and I just have to hope I remember them in the morning.

So that's it from me. I'm passing the baton on to Sheila aka budsmam who blogs about her quilting adventures over on and will post her answers next Monday.


  1. Gorgeous quilts! Gotta love a bit of last min panic quilt making!

  2. Bloody hell, woman, you nearly killed me with your creative process insights. I laughed so hard I choked on a Pringle! *g*

    I see your giant star is finished. Yaaaay! It looks amazing!
