Better late than never, I think that is my motto! I just had to join in with the 182nd WOYWW and post this pic of my very good friend Sandy at my kitchen table. I've not been very well this week as I've had a sore throat. A late afternoon craft session has perked me up a treat. Sandy has been guiding me through the task of making a Christmas book using envelopes stuffed to the hilt with all sorts of tabs and tags. Sandy has supplied all of the papers and has done pretty much all the cutting. When it come to measuring and calculating Sandy is your gal. Thank you my dear friend x. You can see some of Sandy's lovely work over at her blog, Sandy's Piece of Heaven . More pictures to follow later as the book develops. Many thanks to Gail at the Craft Barn for teaching the original project. If you don't know about WOYWW then hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground blog and get involved. x
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
