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!!

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!
