More about me:

I hate this part! I am an administrator for a Resthome and Hospital, in Auckland; New Zealand. We are owned by BUPA, an English company. I have two adult sons, one of whom is married to a lovely English girl, lives in England and is about to make me a grandma. The other lives in Korea, and is sort of (his words, not mine) engaged to an equally lovely Irish lass. I live on a 10 acre life style block, south of Auckland, where we are kept company by our 3 dogs, 2 cats, some sheep, cows, hens and a very noisy rooster. I have been quilting for just two years, and very quickly became addicted!
