About me


Hello, my name is Alice. I am so glad you found my cosy corner of the net. Thank you for being here.

I am a French newly-wed bird, and we currently live in the beautiful country of New-Zeeland with my husband.

In this blog, I’m sharing all my crafty projects, mostly quilts but I also do like other handmade craft such as embroidery.

Make yourself comfortable, have a look around and feel free to say Hi.

PS: the quilt you can see on the background isn’t mine but from the beautiful and talented “The Lady In Thread”, you can find her on Facebook here.

  1. Hey Alice – it was nice to meet you the other day. My friends and I are planning a sewing day for Queen’s Birthday weekend and we’d like to invite you. Flick me an email for more details :-)

  2. Hi Alice. Great to meet you and find another quilter in Wellington. Your email to me came up as noreplyblogger, probably due to the blogger/wordpress issue everyone has been talking about in the blog hop. Could you please send me another one with your email address? Thanks very much.

    • Hi Wendy,

      This is strange as I have received emails from readers in the past. I’ve heard of this Issue too, but didn’t know I was concerned too. Thank you for pointing out, I’ll try to fix it. Anyway, here is my email: blossomquilts(at)gmail(dot)com

      • My name is Kate Chiconi. I live in Mackay, in northern Queensland. I’ve been in Australia for 10 years, but originally I’m half English, half Dutch. I got married a year ago and moved to Mackay, leaving my quilting friends 1500km away, so, like you, I really value my blog as a forum to meet people, find inspiration and help, and see what other people are working on. S’il te plaît, revenir bientôt! Kate

  3. Hello Alice
    I am considering buying this machine and like you I am not used to computerized tools. I purchased one at a special workshop and have never liked it as well as my old steel standard. This model is less than a year old but unfortunately the lady passed away and the son selling it knows nothing about.sewing. I was so pleased to find your review and could you share with me a reasonable price to pay. Thank you so much and I will be sure to check your blog again

    • Sorry I didn’t notice your message earlier. I’m not sure about the price as I paid mine new and in New-Zealand (so the $ are not the same). You could look up on Janome website, they have great video tutorials on how to use the machine. The manual is also very handy, I still refer to it a lot. Happy sewing!
