Hi, and thanks for visiting. My name is Meredithe and I’m a passionate quilter, married to a passionate golfer…the perfect union! When B plays golf, I get uninterrupted time to sew! We live in a leafy suburb of Melbourne (Australia), and when I’m not sewing on my own I’m usually sewing with friends. I hope you enjoy seeing the view from my world.

Cast and Crew
The Golfer:: My loving husband of some 20 years (yes, I was a child bride!), who likes nothing better than flogging a little white ball around the green fairways (and hopefully not getting into the rough) of his local golf course.
Ma & Pa Kettles:: My parents who live in the country, fondly known as The Kettles. Sadly my gorgeous Dad died in 2015, so it’s just Mum now.
MyDearFIL & MIL:: The Golfer’s Dad & Mum who have now both passed away.
LittleBigBrother:: My brother who is younger than me, but at 6 foot, definitely bigger than me!!
DocSisterInLaw:: LittleBigBrother’s wife (who has a Doctorate!)
Poppet:: My beautiful niece, and daughter of LittleBigBrother and DocSisterInLaw
(blis) n. 1. perfect happiness; serene joy
Obviously the collective noun for a group of stitchers!!
Reading: “Holy Island” by L J Ross
Listening to: 70’s music
Watching: we’ve just got Netflix so I’m binging “Mad Men” as I missed it first time round
Going to: get out into the garden to weed…..aaaargh!
- Finally bought myself one of these @sewn_and_quilted after seeing @glendacust using hers. Such a handy way to press seams when hand stitching. Loving it. @clovermfg #handpressinghandpiecing #gottaloveagadget #thankyoufriendAnother “Gateaux” block done ✅ #wednesdaynightstitching #mereditheclarktemplates #mereditheclarksignaturecollectionSpent the last 2 days cutting and now have a basket full of block pieces ready to sew. “Gateaux” blocks on their way! #mereditheclarktemplates #mereditheclarksignaturecollection #templateprep #handsewingJust home from an absolutely fabulous class with Kate @sewintooverlocking all about using an overlocker. My second hand machine died just before lunch so came home via the shops and The Golfer (unknowingly so far!) has treated me to an early birthday present !! So brain dead can’t summon the energy to even unpack it but so looking forward to putting today’s learning into practice. Thanks to my two girlfriends for the sharing of their machines - thank goodness you were there @chillibaby59 and @janljos !!! And thanks again @sewintooverlocking for a brilliant class #nothinglikebuyinganoverlockeronthewayhome #earlybirthdaypresent #learntsomuchtoday #sangriahelping
