Colour everywhere; the flowering cherries on the driveway look great. They usually only get their photo taken when they are flowering but infact have at least 4 different looks during the year. I completed my 4 patch blocks to donate to the group quilt.....I did them ever so carefully to be exact...as everyone's need to match. Shortly I am off for my 1st 2 hour, free lesson with my new sewing machine....yes I am getting it! The Bernina with the stitch regulator...yes, it is expensive but I am going to use it and use it and perfect machine quilting with it I hope! ( eventually !!!)
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.
