Hi. Welcome to my blog. My name is Trisha and I love fabric. After some years of thinking I might be an "artist' I have decided that my favourite thing is fabric and so I am going to make clothing for children. I can use up little bits and go and browse fabric shops any time I like.
Interests: movies, gardening, reading, my grown children and my grand-daughter.
