GROW YOUR BLOG

Hello and welcome,



If you enjoy patchwork, embroidery, felt work and quilting, then you might like to visit my blog.....


My name is Dawn and I live in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia......

Its a long way from the rest of the world, but with the wonderful world of blogging, you can visit me anytime.


The Australian Open Tennis is in town at the moment, so hubby and I popped along to enjoy the sights.



I have always been a little crafty and love to sew and embroider but with the hectic rigors of raising a family, I have only recently found my way back onto the circuit again and I am loving it.  Now that we are empty nesters, my sons room has been converted into my sewing retreat and its where all these goodies are created.













 

I joined a local patchwork group and we have terrific fun, we meet each week to chat and sew and we have the occasional weekend away or day trip to stock up on supplies.


I enjoy visiting other blog sites and keeping in touch and I've made some lovely friends both locally and around the world.  I will always try to answer your comments and keep up with your blog 

Its such fun to join a SAL or a Swap and see the lovely work others do and the buzz that you get when someone comments....well, it keeps me happy for days.  

Bloggers are such generous people, they offer their knowledge free of charge and let you into their world of ideas without any expectations.  See,  even my blog background was offered free by VintageMade For You, and of course,  a big thank you to Vicki at 2 Bags Full, for organising this Grow Your Blog post.

I wont go on any more, but please keep scrolling and take a look at my blog and if you like what you see, please join up and I'll do likewise.  

Bye for now.....Dawn

Hi Dawn, I have been following for a while but haven't been visiting my blog list much of late so it was nice to have a look around your posts today. I agree about joining swaps and SAL's, they give you a chance to meet new people,make new friends and learn lots of new tips to make your quilting life easier. I'm hoping I'll find extra time this year to visit more often. Hugs....

Hello Dawn, returning the compliment and paying you a visit form the GYB party. What a great idea to put a map up to show the world where you live! Shame you didn't do it before the link up or I might have pinched that idea off you LOL

Marit Johanne said...

I have enjoyed so much to visit your blog. All your work is lovely! For me knitting has become what takes most of my time, but I want to sew and quilt again. I think your blog can be an inspiration. Like you I have also my sewing room in what was one of sons room. My son said "you know you are grown up when your boy's room are turned into a sewing room" ;) Greetings from Norway
