Hi, Welcome to my blog!
I'm an ex-pat Brit living in beautiful California where I find I'm constantly inspired by the natural world. I'm a "multi-crafter". I enjoy scrapbooking, quilting, jewelry making, and anything crafty really. I especially love to hand stitch things and I am completely obsessed with the feel of different fabrics. Yes, I'm the person that has to touch everything in stores! I have also loved the process of printmaking since first learning to print at college. A long time ago I was a primary school teacher and when my kids were in elementary school here in California I was always really involved with their school. One of my favorite times was teaching an after school art class for kids in the G.A.T.E program. It was a wonderful experience to be around such enthusiastic kids. In addition to my various crafting addictions, I enjoy archery, bird-watching, kayaking and reading books and blogs. My all time favorite books are "Pride And Prejudice" by Jane Austen and "Wildwood Dancing" by Juliet Marillier. I'm a huge "Sherlock" fan, (I am totally SHERLOCKED), love Dr. Who, now that I'm old enough not to be scared of the Daleks, and am always impatiently waiting for the next series of "Downton Abbey".
This blog exists to document my inspiration and crafting endeavors.
Thanks for visiting!
