About me


Hello and welcome to my blog! I'm so pleased that you are visiting here.

I'm Erica Spinks and I live in Sydney, Australia.

The written word fascinates me and this has led me into the magical worlds of reading, librarianship, writing and editing. 

Quite a lot of my time is spent designing, making, writing and dreaming about quilts and textiles.  I'm always open to freelance writing and editing opportunities (please email me if I can help you).

There are patterns everywhere in our daily lives, don't you find? Pottering in my garden is a great pleasure and I am thrilled by the magic there.

For six months of the year, I become quite preoccupied with the fortunes of the Sydney Swans Football Club. Cheering them in a large crowd is very cathartic!

Want to get in touch with me?

Email : don't be shy!

My goal is to live creatively and enjoy the patterns of life. All my posts reflect my personal opinions. Thank you for spending time with me.
