I have been very fortunate in life and have enjoyed each day so far.

I have a husband who has always spoiled me, two wonderful children (certainly my best creations), two pets (dog and cat) who are our substitute grandchildren for the moment.

I have always been creative from an early age, but have settled mainly with patchwork and quilting, although often diversify as the moment takes me. Hence the Teddy Bears.

Although England will always be my home, we now have a wonderful life in Spain. Having recently taken up golf, I am torn each day between the golf course and the sewing room!

    I was looking for something cute to give a couple of friends for Xmas at our catch-up next week & I think your tortoise pincushions that will be ideal. When I have time I’ll enlarge the pattern as you suggested & see how they look as toys or even doorstops? Many thanks, Sheila.
