Bio: I was named Jacqueline, after the then Jacqueline Kennedy, but am usually called Jacquie .... or Mum .... or Nonna. I live and work in Canberra through the week but hurry to our house overlooking the ocean at Long Beach on most weekends. My husband and I have four adult children - girl, boy, girl, boy . Two are married and one has given us three delightful grandchildren. I stitch, quilt, knit and crochet. My first love is stitching counted thread samplers, especially reproduction samplers. However, my love of fabric inspires my passion for patchwork and quilting, especially applique. So, family, stitching, quilting, eating, sleeping, working ..... Mmmmm.
