About me

Thanks for visiting me here! 

Maybe no-one else is as nosey as me, but often I like to know a little more about people whose blogs I visit -Where in the world do they live? What do they like to do apart from Quilting? Etc...So... 

I'm Camilla and I'm a New Zealander (with UK heritage) once again living in the deep south of NZ after an extended sojourn in Australia.  I'm married with 1 teenager left at school and 2 University age kids, in varying stages of independence. My real life job is as a counsellor. To relax apart from sewing and blogging, (which I'm not completely regular about), I like to keep fit walking and running.

I'm inspired by the beauty of the natural world

wherever in the world it is.

Whatever the weather (almost) I'm quite partial to a camping or outdoorsy holiday away from the crowds

 and hope to travel some more over the next few years. You can read more about some travels we were lucky to have in Cambodia recently in some earlier posts

I studied English Lit years ago so I always enjoy having a good book on the go.  Good food, wine and time with friends and family are always great ways to relax too.

A bit about me wouldn't be complete without mentioning that faith in Jesus is central to my life, but if you want to know about that you'll have to ask me, I'm not going to be shoving it down your throat.

The main reason I blog is to prompt myself to be more creative. You can read more about how this blog came about here

Do let me know you've visited by leaving a comment, I always try to reply.
