This morning I decided to make a fun Fibre Artist Trading Card to serve as a Birthday card for my friend Liz, ( for next Tuesday). It is 2 layers of reinforced felt, with Happy Birthday embroidered on the back. The front has Angelina fibres , ribbon, net and paua. It is the usual size of 3.5 " by 2.5"; so is smaller than this photo shows.
Quilting is a wonderful hobby for me. I love the beautiful fabric and colours - my artistic side comes alive.
I have lived in Te Puna near Tauranga since 1978, where my husband ( R ) and I own a small orchard where we grow Kiwifruit and Avocados for export. We have a large garden and grow many other fruit, nuts and vegetables. When I was young I was a teacher and particularly liked teaching art. I have also worked in the Kiwifruit Industry in Quality Control and Auditing. I love to create and am currently passionate about patchwork and quilting. I sew by hand and using my Bernina Aurora 440 machine.
