Around the World Blog Hop.

Blog Hop.
My blog was tagged by Lizzy of gone2thebeach.blogspot.com last week. She sews and creates and has the sun, sea and sand on her doorstep. A great blog to follow.


What am I working on?

Several items. There are always several projects on the go at the same time.
The most recent is Briar Hill.


Under the Cherry Tree quilt

 
Several X- stitches                                                                                          

 
and I made this little bag recently. I love bags and I'm always finding different patterns

 
 
How does my work differ from other quilters?

I think that finishing my projects and not having a cupboard of WIP's.
I like to make new and old quilts/patterns.
I make a LOT of bags.

 
 
Why do I create/ write my blog.                                                                                      

I like the different stages of making a quilt and being able to show [hopefully] the enjoyment I get from each stage and finally finishing an article. Large or small.

How does my creating process work?

By writing a blog and having photos of the journey. Not so much creating ,more a journey of decisions. Patterns - Size - Colours - Fabrics - Shapes - Techniques. Choices  -  so many choices.

I'd like to recommend a couple of blogs  www.bemused.typepad.com.au
                                                  and    www.nicolamoss.blogspot.com.au
I think you'll enjoy their work.
