FQ Retreat London 2013 - Hello, my name is...

Recently, on Fat Quarterly, Lynne wrote a post with a linky party for those, who are comming to FQ Retreat in London.


There is already quite a list of people, who wrote an introduction post on themselves and I thought it's time to join and write a bit about me.
Those, who are reading my blog for some time now know, that I'm not writing much about my personal life. I always try to limit my posts to important sewing and sewing related topics. Why? One thing is that I do not like to share too many details online (which are available for everybody without any control), and second, that I'm quite an introvert and I guess would feel uneasy, sharing a portion of my private world.
But I will try to write few things about me in this post (just so you know what to expect on the Retreat ;)

That's me :) I'm 30, polish, I now live in Germany, where I did my PhD (in biology) and where I currently work: 

Troszke o mnie w dzisiejszym poscie (to takie male podsumowanie tego, co robie), bo juz jutro wyruszam w droge do Londynu na Fat Quarterly Retreat 2013. Mysle, ze wiekszosc z was mnie zna blizej z forum, wiec sie o sobie za bardzo nie bede rozpisywac ;) Jeszcze w proszku jestem, cala w nerwach, pakuje i sprawdzam z lista, zeby czegos nie zapomniec i mam nadzieje, ze wszystko sie uda :) Trzymajcie kciuki! Zdam relacje jak wroce :D

I have 2 maine coon cats - orange Xanthos the Summer Rose and black-smoke Wesley the Summer Rose:


As I already mentioned I'm terribly shy (I really am) and sometimes I'm also a bit grumpy too ;) As my best friend once said, I'm 'different' and you need to invest some time to know me better (but I can asure, that it's worth it, LOL)

In my free time, as you all now I sew (recently not so often anymore, as I came back to work), work out, cook, read, shop for fabric ;) and shoes (hehe).

Few sewing achievements...
* publications in Quilter's World, Modern Patchwork, Quilters Newsletter and a book (details in 'Published work' tab on the top of my blog)
* awards at Festival of Quilts in Birmingham 2012 and at Prague Patchwork Meeting 2013

That's the nametag I'll be wearing (not perfect and still a bit of washable marker has to be washed out from it):


And here's everything prepared to be packed - nametag, some goodies for the participants of the PP workshop and my PP blocks which I will take with me as PP examples to show:


 See you soon at the FQ Retreat!

  8. Szkoda, że mnie tam nie będzie ale póki co - chyba za wysokie progi jak na moje nogi :)))
    Powodzenia życzę. Pamietaj - głowa wysoko, pierś do przodu. A o całą resztę się nie martw, masz zawsze ze sobą - to się nazywa talent :))

    Zaglądam i podglądam Twoje prace od dawna, podziwiam i cieszę oko. Z niecierpliwością czekam na kolejne. Bardzo ładny imiennik! I ta tasiemka! :)

    Pozdrawiam.
