About Me

Hello, I'm Rose and I live in Tasmania, Australia with my husband Les and our two children, Madeline and Cohen.
Every day is a day to create and I spend most of my time designing quilt projects for my little business Threadbare Creations. As a stay at home mum, I was lucky enough to turn my hobbies into my dream day job while looking after the family. My days are spent designing patterns, teaching classes, working on magazine commissions and writing inspiring content for my blog.
My pattern range includes various techniques i.e. traditional piecing, paper piecing and applique, and you can view my full range of patterns in my store HERE.

My other interests include, cooking, gardening, reading, paper crafts, photography and most recently, crochet. Most nights you will find me crocheting in front of the TV with the family and I enjoy the challenge each new pattern brings. I have a few crocheted items in my Threadbare Handmade shop HERE, so pop over and see what I have for sale. Each item is handmade with love ♥
Although my days are busy creating, my main focus has always been my family; they are my everything and everything I do, I do for them :)

My blog is an eclectic mix of the things I love to create. You will find my quilting designs, my favorite recipes, my crochet projects, free tutorials, free patterns and a few printables to make life a little easier and more organised.

  1. Stuck in home with Covid-19 orders Found your blog--such cute things. I thought I saw a paper-pieced pumpkin--now I can't find it? Was it yours? Could I get it? Thanks!

    1. Yes I do have one. In the search box on the blog, type in Jack O'Lantern and it should pop up. If not click the QUILTING tab and select FREE PATTERNS and scroll through till you find it :) Have fun and stay safe and healthy :)
