Cleverpants Friend

I know someone very clever who has had a magazine profile published in a national quilting magazine.


A selection of her amazing quilts are beautifully photographed for the enjoyment of the readers.


Nine well written pages documenting her creative life and detailing her creative processes.



she was even kind enough to mention me!

Thanks, Kirsty. Very kind of you.

Were it not for blogging, Kirsty and I might have crossed paths at some point, but would never have really had the chance to get to know each other. Now we meet once a week to share an evening of stitching, story telling and, generally, swearing with mouths filled with chocolate. We share our creative secrets and offer support in our creative ambitions. We may yet even manage push each other toward achieving our ever elusive potentials!

Good on you, for your magazine profile. May it lead you to bigger and better things!

  1. Oooh, and I know her too! This is now my claim to fame. That and eating chocolate and swearing with you all each week 😉

  2. Oh she is a clever thing. A nine-page spread! It’s kind of my fantasy to be ‘interviewed’. If I didn’t think she was so deserving and talented and ace, I would probably be jealous.

  3. How good is that ? And so lovely of her to mention her very talented mste.

    I swear I am going to come to Queensland , crash at your place and join in one of those nights.

    I was practically conceived in your town after all.

  4. Thank you for the tantalising glimpses of some very beautiful work.

  5. Our quilt shops here sometimes carry Australian quilt mags….I’ll be on the lookout!

  6. Wow. You sure rub elbows with the in-crowd, don’t you? Congratulations Kirsty. Can I just say I love the limeiness of the leaves in that photo?

  7. Well done you two!

    Apart from the fact that I would love to be able to do that, and get published etc, is it wrong of me to say I am actually most jealous about the mouths full of chocolate?

    Hey, I can’t help being me, can I?

  8. Your friend is very gracious. But of course, you deserve it!

  9. Ooo I like hearing of people making good!

  10. Yay! Now I can’t wait to get home to read it!!!!! 🙂

  11. Hooray! Congrats to Kirsty, and thank you for pointing out this article.

  12. Connected to fame by 2 degrees of seperation. My computer and my modem 🙂

  13. Sheesh – I know the Cleverpants AND her Cleverpants friend. Sort of.

    I feel blessed.

  14. So great to see such talent recognised! Both of you.

  15. Congrats to both of you!

    I, too, want to join in the fun of swearing, hanging-out and having chocolate bits on a weekly basis. That sounds like so much fun ~ especially hearing it with an Aussie accent! I envy you!
