Kim Connelly's Profile

About

My mom taught me to sew when I was probably about 10 years old. If I remember correctly, my first project was a pair of pink bermuda shorts that had palm trees on them (yuck!) I didn't sew for a number of years until my husband bought me my very own sewing machine in 2007, I picked it back up with a vengeance.

Picking fabrics is, hands down, my favourite part of what I do. Bliss for me is having an hour or two to wander through the fabric store pulling bolts off the shelf and seeing which ones go well together. I'm always surprised at what I manage to pull together...it's never where I thought I would go at the beginning.

I describe what I make as handmade goodness from a Canadian girl living in New Zealand. Most of the time, I make things that are sewn either by hand or by machine. My projects include quilts, housewares, baby items, bags, and decor items.
