Since I'm going to the FQ Retreat next weekend I thought I'd join in with the getting to know you linky party. I watched in envy last year so I bought a ticket as soon as they went on sale this time round.
I'm Sarah, a 40yr old (well almost, my birthday is tomorrow) Scot living in the East of England. I'm married to a wonderful bloke and we have a 6yr old son and a 3yr old daughter. I work part time as a forensic scientist which I love.
I've always sewed or embroidered (my mum is a fantastic seamstress and taught me when I was young) but that tailed off after the kids were born. Then when the little lady was about a year old I was looking for a new hobby and I stumbled across quilting and off I went. and through quilting I've rediscovered my love of sewing in general.
I'm coming to the retreat with two friends Jill (The Nocturnal Stitcher) and Anna (who doesn't blog).
Below is one of my most recent and favourite quilts, Starburst.
I love bright, rich colours and have a soft spot for star blocks in general.
This is me
So if you see me in one of my little hats please say hi.
