A little bit of info about me...

Why Do I Blog?
I love nostalgia, handmade items & all forms of stitching. My passion has always been making things. Now I love to use technology/blogging/internet as a new and exciting way of recording my creative journey, from first ideas and inspirations to finished pieces.
Writing my blog is a great way of sharing these projects with other like-minded folks.

I am also interested in the historical aspect of stitching and will try to document some of these more fascinating areas.

Where Do I live?
I live in England, in a very old Edwardian townhouse with lots of nooks and crannies. It creaks and groans daily, full of secrets of days gone by, of people who have long gone. It has many rooms, large and grand that come alive at different times of the year for different family occasions. It can be quite magical.

My Favourite Music

I love to listen to period drama sound tracks such as Jane Eyre, Pride & Prejudice, Far From The Madding Crowd. I also think London Grammar, Enya, Chopin, Adele, Portishead, Nora Jones, Snow Patrol, La Roux & Sam Smith are pretty smashing too.

My Favourite Books
Anything by Donna Tartt, The Goddess Experience, Bronte Sisters, Jane Austen. Cath Kidston - her entire collection! I am also a bit partial to crime/drama/thriller novels. Lately I have become shamefully addicted to historical romances, not quite Barbara Cartland but romantic all the same! (maybe its an age thing)

Also I do have a rather large (huge-obsessive) collection of crafting books... sssshh! don't tell anyone.
