Hi and welcome to my blog, Amanda Harwood Creates. This is my blog about everything crafty. My main loves are quilting, stitching and knitting but I like to try my hand at anything crafty. Ever since I can remember I wanted to create things. My Mum taught me how to knit. Glenda, one of my Mum’s best friends taught me to crochet and Michele, another of my Mum’s best friends taught me the delicacies of scrapbooking and card making. They all must have had the patience of saints. In high school I loved Textiles & Design class and this is where I learnt to stitch. My love of quilting came from my Stepmum, Sharon who owns Morning Star Quilting on the NSW Central Coast. I remember many days sitting in her sewing room going through her fabrics and learning how to use a sewing machine to quilt. In fact, the more intricate quilting on my quilt tops is done by Sharon, although it is a dream of my mine to one day have enough room to own a long arm quilter.
The projects that I will be showing on this blog will not only include my own designs but others and full ownership details can be found at the bottom of each post for these designs.
When I’m not being crafty, I like to play guitar, do yoga and other new age things and hang out with my best friend and husband, Tim…oh and of course, shop in craft/quilting stores. I live with said husband in the lush green hills of Perth.
I hope you enjoy my blog
