Me the quilter?

even to me this seemed a bit unlikely. My mum's into quilting in a big way, even use to sell her quilts to shops when we were living in NZ but it's not something I thought I'd ever get into. That is until I stumbled across Penelope Waits lovely blog, this post is what got my inspired to start on my own pillow. So I took a trip up to see Mum and we went shopping for some material to get me started.

I was looking for bright colours so got these



and straight away got to cutting out the pieces, the cheats way

(i'm still on my L plates, so it's OK)




I know I haven't really got into it yet but so far I'm really enjoying it and am looking forward to getting stuck into it. I shall keep you posted on how I go. x
