"What an amazing surprise – I cannot tell you how thrilled I am, thank you so much.   I thought you might like to know that I am planning to make the pattern I downloaded recently with my two granddaughters when they come to stay over the New Year.  They both would love to have a cat of their own, but unfortunately this is not possible, so I thought this would be the next best thing."

Well I am thrilled to report that my third range of fabric for Freespirit, Katharine's Wheel has done REALLY WELL, doing a small dance now, good job you can't see me! So a huge thank you, to all of you for your support, it means a great deal. Also I would just like to say another big thank you, (I promise this won't  turn into the Oscars!) to all of you who I have met at the Festival of Quilts and/or at the Knitting and Stitching Show in London and Harrogate, it was lovely to see so many of you again and meet others for the first time. Every time I go to the shows I learn more about sewing and quilting and also see so many inspiring things.
What's new? Well 
Eden my next collection
 has arrived yeh!

Which means I am busily making things with it as it comes out in February in the States and March in the UK. I'm doing lots of new projects some of which will be on the website and others will be going into my first book.


I have been sent a Sissix machine, which is such a revelation, as if you're like me and know you'd like to make a quilt but the thought of cutting out all those pieces of fabric very accurately is ging to be virtually impossible, then you will LOVVVVVE having a Sissix. I'm just a bit of a jazz sewer really. I love sewing but always want it to be fun and am not so keen on the boring bits. So I am making my first quilt!! Perhaps I shouldn't have admitted to that!
Oh well everyone has to start somewhere  and previously what with painting, designing fabric and sewing samples for each collection I haven't had the time. So I will share my first efforts with you probably a little later. No laughing allowed! For now, thanks again for joining the Cat Club and do feel free to share things and let me know what you're using my fabric for, I would love to hear or see pictures. Just send them to

Love Nel
