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.

ups and downs

Hello all!  Sorry I haven't been around much this week but the kids have been off school so there hasn't been a great deal of sewing going on. :(

It is funny how the start of a school holiday begins with me looking forward to spending quality time with the kids and lazier mornings.  Then by the end of the break I can't wait for them to get back to school.

Anyway I literally have no new sewing this week to show!!! Unbelievable I know.

So I thought I would share some photos of the latest fabrics I would love to add to my stash!!
