Butterfly embroidery - About meabout me
After completing my Textiles and Fashion degree I worked as a freelance designer for many years. I then trained to be an infant school teacher and had a very rewarding and enjoyable few years teaching reception classes. Now I am proud to be a full-time mother to our two little boys.

I enjoy quilting, dressmaking, knitting, painting, drawing, gardening, baking and reading. I make do and mend. And I love being at home with my thrifted and hand-me down treasures.

I like to be creative every day. Luckily, I don’t like having ‘my two arms the same length’ (doing nothing), so I can always find a little time for my sewing. I try to find joy in the mundane, and don’t believe in keeping things ‘for best’.

I hope you enjoy looking at my website and my blog and leave feeling inspired to get creating… it wouldn’t do to have your two arms the same length now would it?
