For those of you have read the book by Susan Coolidge, you will know the main character as "Katherine Louise Carr". As far as I am aware, my parents have never read that book, but I share te same name as that said "Katy", with the exception that I am just Kate, not Katherine!
I live in Ballarat, Victoria with my husband , two boys, two dogs, one cat, five chooks and a fish. I really enjoy my work as a string teacher at Ballarat Grammar, but am never really happy unless I'm creating something. I have had a go at most crafts (patchwork, folk art, decoupage, leadlighting, beading.....),but patchwork and quilting are my main passions. I don't have a lot to show for all my hours work at home because what I make generally goes to someone else as a gift. The thing I love about making something for someone else, is that I think about the person while I am creating. On occasions, it has been difficult to pass on a gift, as I feel as though it has become a part of me. I'm sure that many others feel this way too!
