A new and exciting venture for me

Well, I seem to be following my younger sister again, but what the heck and who cares. I have been contemplating this for a while, and still don't know what I am doing here. This first note is just to say hi, more will be added as I get some photos of works in progress.

I am not a story writer, and I am not good at putting ideas to paper, but there is always time to learn a new skill. My official studies are coming to an end in one area, and beginning in another area, so I am hoping to have more time to commit to my own leisure and creativity.

I am interested in many things, a few being the use of essential oils, natural soaps and household cleansers, and also natural health products. Quilting is a re-invention of sewing for me. In years gone by, I was an unofficial seamstress, and it was hard to come to terms with buying beautiful material and cutting this up into small pieces, only to sew it back together in a large panel. I have achieved this aim, and am now in the process of making this panel into a baby's quilt. This will be the first one I have made from scratch. The only other quilt I have made, was made from stitching samples from the lessons I received when I purchased my first sewing machine (many years ago). Well this is the end of my first blog, sorry about the lack of photos, I hope to have some for the next time I post on here. I don't know how often that will be yet, but that will get worked out.
