Hello folks, well here I go again, talking about myself, who would have believed it, not me for sure. But I do have to tell you that as the time has moved on, I think I am getting the hang of it now.
So what can I tell you that will make you want to read on further?
Well the thing that means the most to me in the whole world is my family. Husband, brother and sisters, mother and father, nieces and nephews, aunties and uncles, cousins and well the list goes on, as I now have a great niece too (and of course my beautiful rescued staffie Sasha). And of course all my friends mean the world too me to, I love them all.
So now to tell you what can I tell you about myself? I think the first thing to tell you is that I love creating things. I have had a very inspirational and cultivated childhood. With practical creative techniques always being nurtured and developed with the help of the grownups in the family.
I have written it like that because, as well as having incredibly intelligent parents, who just seemed to have an answer to any questions that were thrown at them during my childhood ( and still do to this day) my grandmother also lived with use through the whole of my childhood through to me being in my early 20’s. So she was always there to help too.
So me, and my sisters and brother had the luxury of spending many many hours with a grandma, who was able to pass on her knowledge of sewing and knitting (mainly), and any other ‘crafty’ skills she had, while my parents made sure we all had a very happy, loving and safe childhood.
Sewing has always been my great passion, with knitting coming in second, and crotching which I have only just learnt (in a fashion) coming in third, but not in a last kind of way, because I just love the art of crotcheting (I think its great fun).
As a child I would say 60-70% of my clothing was ‘home made’, so right from the start I was always curious to how this was done. And by the age of about 8 or 9 I was a dab hand on my grandma’s semi industrial sewing machine (which I still have) making all sorts of things.
