Some time ago I met a new blogger and a new transplant to NZ. She was in the mama phase, dipping her toe into the water of making, trying sewing out, making new friends, living in a new country, being brave ...
As she taught herself to sew she discovered that she loved paper piecing and designing patterns. She has slowly honed her craft, started to sell her patterns and build a community of people who love her and her work.
|One of Juliet's amazing patterns.|
Recently she announced that she is writing a book and has a contract - I just about popped with excitement when I heard that.
I'm so incredibly proud of Juliet.
I feel like the lesson of being her friend, and this journey she's been on is...
never stop being a learner,
don't think if you don't have it worked out by now you never will,
that it's too late,
or that you have nothing left to discover about yourself and your creative talents
I can't wait to see her book and celebrate with her. But for today I am so thrilled to have met her through blogging and for the incredible inspiration she is to me.
love you more than the smell of a new book xxx
