This year seems to have been my ‘patchwork’ year — probably as a result of the restrictions imposed on us by the Covid pandemic, I have found more time and patience to dedicate some of my sewing time to patchwork and simple quilting. My efforts have covered a number of projects, including a doggy coat (which I hope to have pictures for soon if only my four-legged model will stay still long enough to be photographed), placemats, bags and decorative household linen like this Christmas themed centre-piece in traditional reds and greens.

When you buy something from an artist, you are buying more than an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experiments. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are not only buying a thing, but a piece of heart, a part of the soul, a moment in the life of someone.
