Taking the plunge.

Paige on her Graduation day.

Girls Toys and Boys Toys.

Quilting my latest quilt.
A peak in the sketch book showing some doodles and ideas for my circus quilt.

I took a little time out at the beginning of the week to attend my beautiful niece, Paige Jones graduation at Nottingham Trent University.  She graduated with a First Class Honours degree in International Law. We are all so proud of her and it was a great couple of days with glorious sunshine.

It is a true saying time flys when your having fun.  I have been enjoying a burst of creativity, drawing, researching, designing and making new quilts and the days are flying by.  I can not get the ideas out of my head fast enough, into my sketchbooks. then made into a quilt or doll, fabric postcard etc, it can be a little exhausting and there is never enough time.  Mind you I am not complaining, creativity is a very fragile thing and can disappear in the blink of an eye, so I am making the most of it.  It has come at a great time as I will be launching my very own website soon. I am so excited, as well as a little nervous, as it is a big thing to put not only your work but yourself as a artist out there.  I am truly blessed to have an amazing husband, who has created the website for me. He also takes the photographs of my pieces and transforms my patterns in photo shop, yep I am a lucky girl.  I have a fantastic family and friends who have not only given me great feedback but their support, which means so much to me. If you would like to take a sneak peak at my website please go to:         

I hope you enjoy your visit and please leave a comment as they are always appreciated. X:)
