Wow – I’ve won an award …
Have you discovered Houzz? If you’re looking for home ideas, it’s awesome. Some really amazing design ideas from all over the world. It’s not like Pinterest – it has links to professionals and design consultants so you can get in touch with real people … like me!!!
I’ve just finished my first quilt of the year, too – a commission. It will have it’s very own ta-dah moment very soon, but here’s a sneak preview …
Have just booked to see La Traviata in London next week – SOOOOoooooo excited!

Hold on tight – we’re off to have a flavour of ancient temples set on the banks of the River Nile …
in a quilt!
I had a scrap of amazing fabric. It’s been hiding in my fabric stash for many, many years – probably 15 at least. There it is, under the name label above – Nile was the name printed in the selvedge edge. That set me thinking late one evening – I gathered rich and vibrant fabrics around me and blocks started taking shape.
I love this quilt. I needed a WOW fabric to set it alight and the vintage gold panel fitted right in, as centre squares and whole blocks. It positively shines in the sunlight.
It’s the sort of quilt that Poirot would have used as he dreamed of solving a mystery!
I’m working on 2 completely different quilts at the moment – one’s called Coast and the other’s called Siesta. I’ll be back soon with photos for you. Enjoy the remainder of the weekend.
