Week #46 Just Sew Sue

Good morning my name is Sue (Just Sew Sue) and I live on the beautiful Island of Jersey off the coast of France. The state of New Jersey was named after our island when it was colonised by Sir George de Carteret who came from Jersey. George de Carteret's descendants still live here.

Although the Island only has about 100,000 inhabitants and covers an area of 45 square miles, there is a thriving crafty population. We have one large evening Guild which was set up 17 years ago called Caesarea Quilters, of which I'm a past President and a branch of the Modern Quilt Guild was set up last month and is doing well.

I have to admit to loving a good sew along. I start with good intentions however I often fall behind. The Farm Girl Vinatge sewalong is a good example, the blocks were all done to schedule but then they now need sewing together.

Another sewalong - also by Lori Holt was more successful as it was finished on time. I love its scrappiness and the variety of low volume backgrounds which was new for me. I will share with you tomorrow my "system" for storing scraps.
