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!

Quilting with a view

I felt inspired this morning so instead of laying about in bed (it's Queen's Birthday today, a public holiday), I got up and finished some quilting I needed to do.

In between stitches I looked out my studio window and admired the distant view I could see down over the lawn between the chicken pen and the trees.

A cup of tea, quilting, and a gorgeous view.  Much better than catching a little more shut eye!

Happy Birthday Your Highness, thanks for the day off.


  1. Grin- sounds like a great way to spend the mnorning. Sleeping is over-rated when there is quilting to be done :-) PS Like the look of your quilt...

  2. Don't all quilters agree that sleeping should be outlawed?? If we didn't need sleep, just think how much we would get done! Great view.

  3. What a gorgeous view...WOW!!
