Hi


My name is Sheryl and my friends call me Shez,i live in a very small country town in Victoria ,Australia.
I have been married for 42 1/2 years we have 3 grown up children and 7 beautiful grandies rangeing from 3 years to 16.
I started sewing clothes for myself and the children after our home was burnt down ,that was about 30 years ago and i have been sewing ever since,except now i dont sew clothes i make gifts for friends and family.
I am using my stash of Nancy Halvorsen fabrics for Michelle's quilt.
I am not good at doing quilts,but i have managed to finish 2 from chooky's SAL (usaually they sit around for years) so these SAL's are good in keeping me on track and for motivating me to keep going,plus chooky keeps on my tail,lol and pushes me along.
I love Michelle's design's and i can think of no better way than to stitch this lovely quilt with friends.
Thankyou Fiona,Raewyn,Chooky and Susan for hosting this.

Cheers Shez xx

Love your choice of fabrics and so great to have you sewing along. I never knew about your house burning down .... a tough thing but it got you on this lovely sewing addiction.... and without that I don't think we would have met...
