Still the old me but an updated ‘This is Me’ page.
It’s December 2020 and we’ve just moved back to England after living in S.W France for sixteen years.
So from here
During lockdowns on both sides of the channel we moved ourselves, two dogs and five cats back home, our two daughters already having made the move back a couple of years ago. We don’t believe in making life easy for ourselves 🙄
I call it ‘the doll’s house’ as it is about a third of the size inside and about one tenth of the size outside compared to the French house but we have ‘done’ the French thing and are glad to be home and nearer to our family. When choosing a house, being able to have a sewing room, even a much smaller one, was very important and, when I’ve finally unpacked all the boxes and managed to find a place for everything, I will have one again,
I still spend a lot of my time wrangling various animals and creating lots of things. I usually have
several too many projects on the go at all times and I’ve tried to finish one thing before I start another but it just doesn’t happen. I’ve tried most crafts but my favourites involve fabric and I love making things for the home, for gifts, for friends. I’m also a knitter and, more recently, a crochet fan plus, a new obsession, needle felting.
I started my blog initially, around eleven years ago, to promote my Etsy shops but have since found it is quite therapeutic – a bit like an intermittent diary – and I find it interesting to look back on earlier entries and remember what I was doing at certain times. Plus, I find it quite a useful place to put photographs! I don’t blog as often as some and I don’t blog exclusively about sewing or knitting or any one thing but whatever is on my mind at the particular time I feel like writing a post.
Thank you for visiting.
