Without Pins is the title of my Patchwork classes. I am a Quilter, textile teacher and general fabric collector - or does it come and find me? I like to play with colour and subvert pattern by the use of tone. I have always sewn and stitch something, somewhere, every day.

More tiny Christmas quilts
Winterton Quilters are having a Craft Sale in November. These are the mini quilts I made on my quilt Retreat in Hampshire. Patterns by Nancy Halvorsen which I have had for many years. They are fused appliques and were fairly mindless sewing for the days after my accident with Helen when I was feeling rather flat.
My favourites are the fat snowman that Miriam embroidered for me, and the pink berried holly!
There are Signs of Autumn in the garden:
I saw this lovely quilt Enid had made for her Grandson at quilt group... she found inspiration for the designs in a children's magic painting book!
