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!
