Hello from England!!

Sorry for the delay in a new post.  I am currently in England on vacation and have had a little trouble with finding wi-fi.
I have been doing my hexies while I have been travelling and hope to have some more done on the way home.
This will be a scrap quilt and I am trying to use up all the scraps that I have (lol).  This is the perfect travelling project.

I haven't found any quilt shops (patchwork shops) yet.  It is not as popular here or in Europe as it is in North America.  But I am hopeful that I will find at least one before I come home.

This is my first blog post ever!!

I have been thinking about writing a blog for some time and have finally decided to jump in with both feet.
I plan to blog regularly but as we all know "life happens".  I love to quilt, bead, sew, knit & travel to new and far away places.  I find inspiration for designing needlework projects everywhere.  I have an etsy shop - Due North Designs where I am attempting to sell my original quilting patterns some of them inspired by my travels and also some ready-made holiday items.
For my first post I will leave you with a picture of my 'baby'. 

We are leaving today for vacation and I will be leaving my 'baby' for two weeks.

Tomorrow we will be in another country and I will post a photo - see if you can guess where we are??

So long for now!!
