A group of internet artists from all over the place who have decided to give each other a challenge every few weeks, on a theme chosen by each in turn. We have different ideas and styles, but share a love of textiles, and want to have some fun.

Introducing Mags

Hi, I'm Margaret (Mags for short) and I'm a  year younger than Marion , Angela and Liz. Something about reaching 50... I've been doing a lot of navel gazing and not much quilting this year so the idea of a challenge shared with your company is just what I need.
I work full time as a scientist at Kew Gardens, married to Ian for 6 years, no children . We've lived in this house in Brentford for 4 years - large enough to hold  thousands of books ( the only duplicate  a Delia Smith cookery book!) 3 computers and my stash of fabric and art supplies which is not small. I have the biggest room  as my office/studio.

I have always painted  and drawn and have been stitching almost as long ( my  mother did C&G embroidery in the 70's and taught patchwork and quilting). I've been making Journal Quilts for the last 8 years but my preference is for working on a larger scale ( I'm glad to see that there's no size constaint here!) I set up a website a few months ago  and I've been blogging since 2007 (magsramsay - experiments with textiles, paints and plants ).
Looking forward to seeing what everybody comes up with!

It's so lovely to find out stuff about people you have interblogged with but haven't met. It's like reading a magazine!

Soo glad you're here Mags, as I know we both share a love of paint and stitch together - albeit in a different format. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
