My name is Collette and I am a quilter from Scotland. I have been a patchworker and quilter for over a decade and love to share what I have been making here.

First day back to school!

What no sewing???? Yes, today here in sunny Newmilns is first day of term for primary school pupils!  Jacob has begun primary 4 ( where did that time go????) and Emma has her first day ( morning really) in p 1.

I haven't sobbed yet!  I am saving it for when my baby is away for her first full day, packed lunch and everything :( 
Thanks for all the help with my FMQ on my table runner.  I took the lovely Judith's advice and did some more quilting last night and am hopefully working toward a more even distribution of quilting now!  Pics to follow soon.
