I am participating in the Grow Your Blog hop hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full and I am happy to be posting today as part of the blog tour.
For those who do not know me I am a craft obsessed retired occupational therapist who believes passionately in the value of being creative for well-being and health.
(my current South African flower project )
I love to knit, crochet, embroider, paint and most of all QUILT!
(Starry Hexagons - just started quilting)
I started about 10 years ago whilst I was still working but after retiring 3 years ago I can now indulge myself with my hobbies and have made numerous quilts over the last 3 years years which I have given to friends and family. You can see some of my recent quilts and paintings on the pages at the top of my blog.
(just added Prairie points to my Lakehouse Irish Rose quilt)
I belong to the Mowbray Quilt Group and I am currently organising our first Quilt Retreat in April which should be great fun.
Blogging has become an important part of my life and I have made some great new friends across the world and learnt so much from all of you in blogland !
I mostly post pictures of what I am currently working on.
As my husband and I have a touring caravan we now spend as much time as we an over the spring and summer travelling around the UK so I post some of my travel pics as well. ( Our travels seem to take us very near to quilt shops which is a great coincidence - hee hee !!!)

I have a give away to celebrate the blog hop -its a book about using up scraps ( which we all have so many of) and some fabric so leave a comment after visiting and I will draw a winner on the 15th February.
Good luck and thanks for stopping by
