About me

I was born in Alsace, France and now live in Dublin, Ireland with Hubby, Lucie and Daisy the cat. As far as I can remember, I have always loved making things. My mum is a great sewist and knitter and she taught me all the basics when I was a kid. I caught the quilting bug 17 years ago after attending a couple of classes just after moving to Dublin. I have been quilting ever since, on and off and more recently full time. I have pretty much taken over the attic with my fabric stash and my sewing machines. I have a long list of projects that is only getting longer… This blog is my way of showing off my work.

    Hi Catherine,
    I just found your blog and really enjoyed having a peek into your quilting world. Your quilts are beautiful and I’ll visit again soon!

  3. Bonjour Catherine,
    Je viens de découvrir les tissus indigo shweshwe et votre blog :toutes mes félicitations!
    Ai-je une chance de trouver des cotons indigo shweshwe en France, et avez-vous essayé
    les sites on-line d’Afrique du Sud?
    Merci pour votre réponse. Bonne journée. Elisabeth des Pays de la Loire.

  4. Merci beaucoup Elizabeth ! J’ai trouve mes tissus sur un petit stand allemand au Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork qui se tient en Alsace chaque annee en septembre. Malheureusement je ne me souviens pas du nom du stand. Cet evenement en vaut bien le detour si vous n’y etes pas encore allee !
    Autrement, vous pouvez commander directement depuis l’Afrique du sud (en anglais) sur ce site : http://www.shweshwe.net/index.asp – Rene le gerant est tres sympa et repond immediatement aux questions posees. Bonne chance dans votre recherche!
