I'm writing my first ever blog whilst watching the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics. As a country we are marking the end of what has undoubtably been a successful few weeks for British Sport and for Team GB as a whole. You only need to spend a minute considering the time and organisation that has gone into both the opening and closing ceremonies to know that Britain really can put on a good show when they want too. But I didn't set this blog up to talk about the Olympics. As the UK celebrates country-wide success, I am hoping that this blog will mark the start of a successful venture for me personally.
After years of working hard academically it feels like its time for something a little more creative!!
Over the years I've tried many different crafty activities but my real love is fabric and more specifically patchwork and quilting. I admit I am an addict, a fabric addict that is... I just can't resist the wide variety of colours and the possibilities they present and so stored in a collection of boxes and bags, under beds and in cupboards, hides my 'stash'; lovingly folded and waiting with anticipation of some greater purpose.
I've decided that it's time to take my obsession one step further and to share my 'addiction' with others. I'm a teacher by profession and perhaps also a little by design and so I've decided that now is the time to bite the bullet and start my own patchwork and quilting classes! The prospect is exciting but also a little scary!
