Henna Flickr Group

I have been running a mini contest for the last month with some fellow members of the LMQG. I asked them to use their skills and imagination to design and make some projects using fabrics from henna. And they have come up with some fab and original creations. I will post a lot more about […]


Say hello to my Victory quilt! I feels kind of strong and victorious to me so I gave it a fitting name. This one was a team effort. It was designed and quilted by me but my mum pieced it for me. She’s retired now so I am keeping her busy! It uses most of […]

Hive quilt finally sees the world

I have been waiting…… and waiting……. and waiting for some sunshine, on a day when I don’t have the children with me, to get my quilts photographed. It hasn’t happened! so today I went into town, in the rain, with a bag full of quilts to try and get at least one good picture of […]

Meanwhile… somewhere in Henley…

I spent most of yesterday quilting my victory quilt (working title). This was designed by me and beautifully pieced by my lovely mum! Thanks Mum!

Introducing Henna

This beautiful collection, designed by yours truly, will (finally) hit the shops in November! Woo hoo! I suppose this is like posting those first proud baby pictures! It has been about 9 months in the making so to finally see my first fabric range in front of me has been quite emotional! The range started […]

More DIY wardrobe building…

I’ll tell you something you may well think is a lie, and that’s, that I went to the festival of quilts and only bought one piece of fabric! No books, no gadgets, no tasty fabric bundles, just one and a half metres of some Anna Maria Horner rayon with which I had plans. Those plans […]
