    Kia ora from New Zealand

    Kia ora

    I'm Alison (aka Frogsta) from Wellington, New Zealand. I've been doing handcrafts since I was about five years old but only got into quilting last year after I watched one of Jenny's tutorials on the Craftsy website. It's been a slippery slope to addiction ever since! (I've had the 'no more fabric!' talk from the husband already). A friend and I have started having a craft stall at a few local markets and I have recently been adding my quilting efforts into the mix of soft toys and baby knitting.

    I live with my husband and our two cats (my babies). We both work full time - I do admin and am involved with the Association of Administrative Professionals of NZ (a past-President of the Wellington Group). I'm also into music and singing and am currently in rehearsal for a musical variety show at our local theatre. If I'm not sewing, knitting or singing you'll find me with my nose in a book. Oh, and I collect froggy ornaments and stuff, hence the username.

    It's really difficult to find charm packs etc in New Zealand and everything here is expensive so I've been buying a few bits from the MSQC. I'm really excited to become part of the quilting community and look forward to seeing and hearing what everyone else is up to.

        Hi Iris Girl. Thanks for the welcome. I have a friend in NY - he married a local girl. We have plans to get over there one day but there's so much to see and do, we need to save up quite a lot beforehand. It's one of those bucket list things.
