I figured I best get on the band wagon too.
A lot of you have met me at GDITC - I am a reasonably regular blogger (here) - and went to GDITC each year from 2014 to 2017.
I am originally from Sydney and now live in Brisbane - have two girls - aged 28 and 26. I started cross stitch in the mid 80s and then patchwork a few years later. Cross stitch eventually faded out of the scene - although recently I have done a few smaller items.
For my patchwork style, I prefer brighter colours - although I like the look of civil war, reproductions etc - it just isn't me. And I haven't been bitten by the EPP bug. I prefer making tops rather than quilting them. And for me it is about the process of making them not so much the end result.
Yes, I do like Purple but I love any of the jewel colours just as much.
I am so easily sucked in by new projects, new ideas - a lot of you will understand that!!
I am so good at starting a new project - not so much about finishing.
I belong to 3 sewing groups - so rarely have a weekend without a sewing day in it.
I will be travelling with my bestest buddy, Maureen, - most of you know her from some GDITC trips too - stopping at a few shops along the way....if we find them.
Maureen and I met at work - we spent our lunchtimes sewing in one of the spare offices.
I am very much looking forward to seeing all those I know again - meeting some newbies - especially the ones that I know via blogging - and having a long break from work - since this trip is just after Easter and I need to leave Wednesday to get there by midday Thursday - I figured there wasn't a lot of point in going to work on Tuesday - so I will start Easter on Wednesday night - I don't work Thursdays - and will have all the week after Easter off. Mind you I think I am going to be pretty tired on Monday after a long trip home...oh well - so sad - too bad.
Not long to go now - 18 sleeps til we leave!!!
