I am a quilter living in Woodbridge, Suffolk who has made quilts since I was a teenager. I also ring bells! Both are great British traditions....I will try to feature some of my antique Welsh and Durham quilts, the quilts I make myself, my quilting activities and also some of my bellringing achievements. Plus as many photos as I can manage. NB: Double click on the photos to see greater detail, then use back button to return to the main page.

House for Retirement

My retirement house, bought with the money left to me by my mother. The small house is in a very convenient and quiet location in a thriving village.

As the house had been empty for about two years, the garden was very overgrown. The previous owner was a keen gardener, and  I was attracted by the garden. As I plan to rent it out for the time being, I just hope that we can find tenants who also like to garden.

The entire garden was overtaken by an aster and other rampant weeds, so nearly twenty bin liners of plant matter were pulled and taken away by me.

I bought replacement curtains on Ebay to cheer the place up.

 I also repainted two bedrooms and the kitchen. Plus, I had the garage reroofed, the garage rewired, the front door rehung and I repainted the green house . Plus getting electric and gas certificates. So I hope that all goes well with finding tenants!
