Welcome to my blog, enjoy and leave a comment if you wish.
Interests: I work full-time in tourism. On my days off I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, sewing, pouring over craft books and wishing I had more time to sew, cooking and entertaining my grandchildren on their visits to our home. I also enjoy visiting other blogs and discovering what wonderful craft others make. Send me your link please.

Oh well, they have seen it before messy, but not quite as messy as this... Believe me, your sewing desk is EXCELLENT compared to mine! B x

Lovely to see you today Melissa, Bella and Mum :) Well my style.. mm got me thinking.. think I could be classed as a homebody - a person who loves to be home, except when at work! I have some gypsy in me, rather than travel, its the wandering type.. start one thing, move onto the next before finishing the last one! lol..think you'll know what I mean Mel after the visit to the sewing room.. And its always a black pants person, whether at work or home, not really into shoes..brummy feet don't yearn for gorgeous shoes.. I love colour or multi-colour, jewels, necklaces, pretty things..velvet/silk/satin -- although I don't own anything in those fabrics.. I am sure my life was meant to have a butler or a maid in it, as I don't really enjoy housework, or cooking main meals.. I love to cook cakes and easy things.. the house is clean but often messy, I'm not really into home decorating either.. I love pretty, new, unique, solid, durable, old furniture, country comfort, yet I love ultra modern too.. I suppose I appreciate it all in some one elses house. I love thinking up ideas, looking at magazines, having stashes of fabric, craft due to the distance to travel to shops.. I think that will do on me, I so enjoyed reading yours :)

well Mel I started to look at the blog this morning and then got side tracked onto Etsy..lol... I resisted temptation at this stage to buy the fabric, but did buy a beautiful vesper motor bike print, which I may give to Deb for her birthday, although I do fancy it myself... and if only I had the legs for those gorgeous leg warmers! Fantastic goodies.. I've chosen some to put on my blog tomorrow.

Yeeh Ha Mel what a marathon and you managed to complete it, looks fabulously warm, timely on such a wild windy weekend. The extra row of crochet is fab.. um does that mean I have to crochet around the edge of mine? Will have to match the wool now if that is the case.

mm that is what I always found Mel with cross-stitch no modern designs.. oh and they are a lot of work, you really have to keep going, bought a lovely involved one once to embroider and ended up discarding it as I'd taken way too much on!
