Kia-ora and welcome to my blog-- a little about Kiwi Jan and Fudge I am a retired homemaker married to Tom. I have two grown kids and four grand kids the lights of my life and a Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel called Blaze.
My hobbies are gardening with Blaze right beside me --and stitching- stitching and for a change more stitching--- this is where Fudge comes in. Fudge is my trusty Janome sewing machine --why call her Fudge well have you ever Fudged something---!!!
I am a quilter both hand and machine with Applique as my favourite technique.
I have completed a 'Baltimore Quilt' and also a 'Dear Jane' plus many others.Most of which have been given to family and friends.
I am a maker of bags--- don't ask how many I have made will you!!!
I also love making Artist trading cards and postcards which I trade around New Zealand and Australia thru a small Yahoo group that I own and thru a couple of other groups around the world.
What fun it is to receive postcards from way over the other side of the world.
I hope to show some of my work and tell a little about New Zealand.
Nuff for now
