Me, myself and IHello! My name is Elisabeth and I live in Switzerland with my daughter, Little Miss Bossy-Boots, and my cat Charlie. I have always loved to sew but since discovering quilting a few years ago my life has changed. Sewing can be quite a lonely hobby but the online sewing and quilting community has made me feel incredibly welcome.

Everyone in my family is quite crafty. My grandfather built a cabin which my father and mother later extended. We had help to build the foundations, walls and roof but did everything inside ourselves. While my dad did all the cladding and built the kitchen cabinets, my mum, my sister and I made curtains, throws and cushions.

Both my grandmothers and my aunt knitted and crocheted all their lives; my mother and sister still do. My mother also used to make clothes for my sister and I when we were little and my favourite thing was to sit next to her and watch her sew. I believe this is when my love for sewing first started.

For a very long time I didn’t have my own machine and didn’t make that much. However, I really got into sewing again when my aunt very kindly gave me her Bernina 1120 a few years ago. I still sew with this machine and absolutely love it.

Please drop me a line if you have any questions about the projects or tutorials.
