"My skills grew, my passion grew, my website grew, and it started to become more than just a hobby. Little step by little step. As a trained teacher, I loved the educational side of quilting – designing patterns, writing articles. I began to sell my designs, and be published in magazines, and slowly my business began to grow too. And with it, my confidence and my self-belief.
There was this thing that I had found, that I had learnt about and was experienced in. This was this thing that I could do, and I was good at it.
After four years in Japan, we moved back to Australia, and settled in Melbourne. But this time, being in a brand new place with no shared history with anyone didn’t scare me. I had some quilting friends I had made online, and they quickly became best friends as we connected in person. I now knew that in any situation, I could not just cope, I could love life."
