I fill my days with quilting-related activities, so much so that I still think to myself I didn’t get as much done today as I would have liked, but at least I have another day tomorrow to do it all again! Since being retrenched from my previous job, I have been fortunate to be able to stay at home and I have so loved being able to do what I like whenever I like.
I hope to develop my long-arm quilting business, but that is a long-term prospect, particularly in an environment where success depends very much on word-of-mouth, so I need to get more quilts quilted and build from there. I’m not one to easily self-promote so I find the aspect of looking for business the most difficult. So, it is a conundrum; how do people who don’t like promoting themselves drum up customers?!
In the meantime, I’m working on some quilt-art pieces for the exhibition that my local group, Gatton Quilters, will be having in June. All of the pieces have to be labelled and have a hanging sleeve – and that’s after they are actually finished! I’m planning to show 4 or 5 pieces, all with different techniques and end results. I’ll show some photos on here once I’m happy with them!
In the meantime, here is a photo of our baby- she is now 14 weeks old, growing lots and slowly learning how to be well-behaved – at least, most of the time!

And just for good measure, I have to include a photo of our little old lady Chloe, who so patiently (or not as the case may be) puts up with Hayley bounding all over her!
