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.

Fresh and shiny

Sometimes blogging is hard.  It is hard to keep up with all the fantastic writers and creators out there.  Other times it is hard to fit in.  Every now and then, usually after a blogging drought, I reevaluate my reasons for blogging and usually come back to the same answers.

I don't do it for numbers or sponsors (although I would never question those who do - good on them I say).  I just don't have the energy for that.

Blogging is another creative outlet for me.  I need to share my work, warts and all.  I need to share progress,  procrastination,  and in return quilters who blog support each other.

So here I am ready for my blogging journey in 2015.
I started teaching my patchwork classes again a few weeks back.  Mandy walked in with this super duper tray stacker for organising her nine patch blocks.

Isn't it fab?  She got in Spain.
I got some goodies in the Cotton Patch sale.  The purple will be a quilt backing. The others are just because!
I also cleaned and oiled Bernadette too.  
And last but not least, I have been trying my hand at some drop spinning yarn.  It is fun and challenging but so rewarding to see your very own yarn made by yourself!

Next time I hope to share some more of what my lovely students have been learning and some thoughts on my UK Mini swap.
