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.

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.
