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!!


  1. Your BJP flower is pretty cool! I really like the outline of the flower in gold.

    Your etsy shop has a nice variety of your work. Welcome to blogging. I'll be your first follower. I want to see where you are going~~pun.

  2. welcome to the wonderful blog world. Your BJP for July is wonderful!!! Very nice idea of using hexagon shape! Shows off the bead pattern very nicely!
