About Me

Hi bloggers,

Welcome to my life. I am 56, married with three children,two gorgeous girls and a great boy and a lovely almost daughter who shares our lives and refers to me as her 'mumthing'.As you will have guessed from the title of my blog  I LOVE CRAFTING.

I was lucky enough to go to a school where needlework and knitting were considered important(for girls). I made  two cushions, a toy cat, a handkerchief case(?) and a knitted pan holder in my 11plus year. Then went on to take my needlework GCSE and got a rather spectacular 'F'.
Despite this failure my love for crafts and consequently my craft stash continued to grow. Alas the inevitable stash has now reached the point where something needs to be done(again!). My husband has been very tolerant but you know that old saying

   'Needles and pins, needles and pins, when a man marries his trouble begins'

Well I don't think he expected them to be real needles,pins,fabrics,yarns,glue etcetera.
Anyway a compromise has been reached.

          I will  keep my stash and try not to add too much to it
         and
          I will try to create one item a day which I will give away or sell

Which hopefully will reduce it to more manageable proportions.This blog is a record of the attempt. I shall take photos as I go and if I think anything works I'll put up instructions in case you want to try it. I hope you enjoy reading it.
