Introducing...

Hi there!

I'm Bec, an Aussie girl born and bred. Right now I'm a full time mum to a nearly one year old munchkin. He takes up nearly all my time (really?) but whenever I successfully wrestle him down for a nap I go and hide in my crafty haven. My hubby calls it 'the study', but I'm slowly taking over...

I've always loved making things. My mum tells me that before I could read I would pull kiddy craft books off the bookshelf and make projects just from looking at the pictures. Mum fostered that love of making by having a big box of craft things in the cupboard; cardboard, kitchen roll tubes, scissors, glue, paint, it was all in there. Gradually I became interested in a variety of crafts and the collection in the cupboard grew until it took up a whole cupboard of it's own, and then a cupboard and a shelf and then a cupboard and three shelves... you get the picture.

I've done lots of crafts over the years, quilling, beading, card making, cross stitch, knitting, crochet, dressmaking but my current love is quilting. I think it's all the colours and the magic of putting tiny pieces of fabric next to each other to create something new and exciting! I love it!

So there you are! My creative history wrapped up in a nutshell. I'm keen to share projects past and present and hopefully convey some of the joy that making them brings me :-)
