About & Gallery

I am a Melbourne Australia based handweaver, mosaicist, quilter, sometime dressmaker and former hobbyist potter.

I’ve loved doing creative stuff since I was a little girl and I thank my grandmother for introducing me to machine sewing and hand weaving at the age of six. My beloved is Licensed2Tinker. He builds boats for fun and is a wonderful loom restorer and creator of weaving accessories.

In July 2013 I bought a pre-loved Druva four shaft floor loom. Next came a Dorset folding loom. The journey continues and I acquired a pre-loved Glimakra Julia eight shaft coutermarche loom in 2019.

Here are some pictures of my mosaics and quilts.

  1. Oh Wow! Love the mosaics!

  2. I really like how your designs are applicable to various techniques, fabric and stone – just great!

  3. Wow. I love mosaic and that You have made is awesome. In Finland I can see very seldom mosaic. Last time when I saw one was in a church where it presented an altarpiece.

    I wonder if You have ever seen Quilts made in Finland

    Happy quilting!

  4. Very cool. I’m impressed (but not surprised) at the creativity on show here.

  5. I love your blog!! and thanks for following me :)

  6. Hi, I saw your comment about the American patchwork magazine on another blog. I just thought you might like to know that you can buy the digital version of the magazine here.
    My daughter bought me a different magazine in digital format as I couldn’t get it in the UK and it is great. Saves on shipping too :-) Avis x

  7. I have nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award! :-) Check out the details here: http://wp.me/p4ctKm-er

    Best, Kristina

    • Thank you very much for that. Blogging awards are a bit of a mystery to me – I can’t quite work out if they’re a good thing or just the modern equivalent of the old-fashioned chain letter. I appreciate your support, either way.

  8. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. It was very kind of you to leave a suggestion for my Fibershed project, and it also meant I discovered your own blog!

  9. I’m the proud owner of the number 9 mosaic. It’s still as beautiful today as the day I received it. It’s so well designed and crafted and it makes me smile every time I arrive home and see it.
