One of the things about the very slow unpacking process has been the rediscovery of all the different things which I have collected over the years. And here I am talking specifically craft related.
I have discovered over the years that I have scrapbooked, knitted, crocheted, painted, drew, made lace in a variety of ways and made clothes. I am sure that there are things which I have tried and thrown out immediately upon discovering that whatever it was, wasn’t quite the craft I was looking for.
About 15 years ago I was at a craft fair in Brisbane with my sister-in-law and I saw quilts for the first time. I was completely hooked. It took a couple of years until I started my first quilt (what was to become my first UFO), and since then I have made quite a few… Actually I have no idea how many.
Why did you start quilting?
