Well it has been a little while hasn't it?

This year is flying by and things have certainly been happening here.

My world was turned upside down a few weeks ago when I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. I am now home after having surgery last week and optimistically looking towards the future. There are many more quilts and projects that need to be planned and created. 

Before my surgery I finished my latest BOM, using the Floral Dance designs from Hatched in Africa. I created this quilt with an embroidered border, the first of my BOM quilts to have one.

If anyone would like the links to the block constructions for this quilt top you can email me. Please be aware that it may take a day or two for me to reply.

I am also undertaking a Family History Diploma through the University of Tasmania and that has been keeping me busy whilst I recuperate. It has been very interesting to discover the many convicts that I have in my family history and to unravel their stories.This is a photo of my great ,great,great grandmother Julia who was transported to Tasmania for 7 years in 1850 for stealing among other things, fabric.
