Grow Your Own Blog

Hi Everyone,
Thank you for stopping by. I'm not quite sure what to put in this but here goes :)

I live in Kent in the UK and have one grown up son and a partner both of whom live with me. We also have two cats, Millie aka Psycho Kitty and John aka Emo Kitty. :)
I like to sew, embroider, knit, tat and make dolls. I also love reading and watching films.
I really enjoy visiting other people's blogs, not only to see what they're making ( so inspirational) but because it allows me to contact people all around the world and gives me a chance to learn about their lives and the places they live.

Anyway feel free to browse, I hope you see something you like :)

  11. Visiting from Vicki's party- your work is lovely- I have no sewing skills so am so jealous of those who have talent with a needle! we have a psycho kitty too (nicknamed affectionately of course) among our 4 felines!

  14. Hi Christina, popped over to Penny Wise but it wouldn't let me follow atm, I'll try later, enjoyed your Austen Tea Party and loved the ideas there :) If it's any consolation ... my baking skills are very basic... *why have the biscuits got butter and jam on mum? ... Because they're scones son' :S

  17. Hello Lesley
    Your crazy quilting looks fantastic. It is one of my greatest loves also but lately have moved more into creating projects from collages and fabric books often using crazy quilting.
    I am sure you will meet many bloggers here who just love crazy quilting like myself.
    Wishing you a great time at the party.
