My name is Charlotte, sometimes known as Ms Lottie, occasionally as The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady. This is my blog, where you'll find me writing a lot about my quilting and textile arts and a little about my family's life in a small seaside town in New Zealand. Haere mai!
I need a medal. I visited Calico Christmas, the exhibition of the Auckland Patchworkers and Quilters Guild with many, many merchant stalls and I did not come home with a single skerrick of fabric...but I did come home with this book. (And if anyone knows where my camera is, please let me know. So image borrowed from Amazon! And no you can't click to look inside.)
I've seen it advertised in a magazine before and thought I'd like to have it as my interest in eco-friendly quilting grows. Then after I flicked through it at the Minerva stall, I just couldn't leave without it. The most vibrant and luscious photography adorns its pages and it's full of ideas and recipes for natural dyes. I can't wait to get started.
I forgot to take my camera to Calico Christmas (and now it's MIA) so used my cell phone instead. Problem: I can't get the pics from camera to computer. So if you want to have a lookey at some, go here to Leann's blog. She's a little more organised than me!
