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!

Show Notes - Podcast - Episode Three

I tried something new today and went mobile with a handheld voice recorder.  My stitching group were my guinea pigs and I have to say a big thank you to Steph, Monika and especially Suz who let me try out my interviewing skills.

Monika's blog:

Here is an image of Suz's very first quilt she made about ten years ago - we talk about it in our interview.  Go visit her blog for a look at the type of quilts she makes now - she's pretty talented!

Sorry - taken on my iPad so not the best pic.
I know my audio isn't perfect, but I think it's listenable.  I'm getting better at using my software - I managed to splice three different audio files into one today - go me!  And I'll get better at using my handheld recorder too.

Hope you enjoy it!

and you'll find me on iTunes under The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady.


  1. First up, my voice didn't sound half as terrible as I expected - although nothing like what it "really" sounds like to me. What great fun! Don't bring it again next time... just kidding :0)

  2. Please share this HST technique with your friend: I know she has the triangle ruler, but this might help her and prevent her from having to print off templates.
