I am Cambridgeshire-based crafter in the UK with interests in sewing, needlework, card-making and other general craft activities! You can see some examples of my work throughout this website, you’ll find I particularly like things with interesting colours and patterns! To see my latest projects, have a look at my blog!
I have an interest in sewing clothes and other item of use (such as sewing machine covers, knitting rolls, anything useful really!). I have been sewing by hand for a long time now, I started off sewing toys from kits when I was young. In about 2012 or so, I learnt how to sew with a machine and used a borrowed mini-machine to make skirts. In Nov 2014 I brought a new full-sized sewing machine and have since delved into sewing many different items including tops, trousers, skirts, cloaks and many other smaller items.
Although not featured very much on this site, I love to do cross-stitch and other decorative needlework. I nearly always have a project on the go and will often use my cross-stitch for cards, particularly at Christmas time!
I have always enjoyed making cards and with lots of people having birthdays every year, there’s no end of cards to make! I tend to use card blanks, stamps, coloured pencils and pens for my basic cards and for special occasions and Christmas I will use a wide variety of materials from feathers to sequins to cotton wool and lolly sticks! I have also used my cross stitching and crochet projects to create cards as well.
In Apr 2015 I became more interested in knitting, crochet and weaving. I prefer making small items as they take much less time to complete, but I have a longer project of each on the go currently. You can check out my yarn crafts via my Ravelry project page!
I also very much enjoy photography and have started a 365 project for 2015. Every so often I’ll blog about my photographic adventures but you can always have a look at my 365 project!
I have a few other craft pieces and pieces that I will occassionally do for one-off things, these will all be blogged when they happen!
Beyond crafts and making things I am a keen musician, playing with the Cambridge University Ceilidh Band (www.cucb.co.uk) on recorders and accordion mainly. I am also a Morris dancer with Granta Blue Morris (www.grantabluemorris.co.uk) and ceilidh dancer whenever I get a chance!
