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.

sewing at last!

At last I have a little sewing to show you all!  Yesterday I spent most of the day feeling sorry for my poor stiff body.  Not through exercise I hasten to add.  I have no idea what has been going on but today I feel better.

So the desk got a post Christmas tidy and on went the machine.

I wanted to try out this bee block as I struggled comprehending the instructions!  I like Anna Maria Horner's feather so far!   

Just waiting on the background fabric coming along with some other goodies hopefully tomorrow when I will share them with you! 

Still a bit to do yet though!
