About Me

My photo
I currently live in Birmingham and come from Solihull. I have a love of all things crafty, developed from my mom's love of crafts as I was growing up. I currently work in marketing, but I'm a qualified Aromatherapist, and use to be self employed alongside a day job, might one day return to that. I try to fit in crafts when I can, I wish I had more time and money to spend on it! I enjoy researching my family history and finding out about the past. It can get frustrating, but is really rewarding when you have a break through! I hope to meet people with similar interests as me and swap advice/stories.

Craft Swaps & Inspiration

Been a little quiet, but had some inspiration from swaps & visiting crafty places! Take a look!

Vintage swap by Linen&Fred - we had to collect various vintage items and swap - now I have these lovely goodies to add to my vintage craft stash...which I'm using up making little gifts and items to sell

Needle case - lovely red rose

Need to find something suitable to sew this lovely bird onto some vintage fabric I think

Quilt Show at the NEC - not yet up to these standards (unlikely I will EVER be this good!)

At TOFT - Alpacas

Susan Crawford Vintage Knits

Lots of lovely inspirations...what's next??! Better try making something!!
