This is the blog of a very undomesticated crafter. It will mainly be about crafting but may delve into other aspects of my life so here’s a mini bio.
I am an undomesticated crafter, with rather large fabric stash, a getting smaller yarn stashes and full time job. I am married to a CLL sufferer.
I truly believe that knitting is in my DNA as I don’t even think about what I’m doing when I knit. It really is second nature to me.
I love sewing ,knitting and also do scrapbooking, cross stitch and card making although these have fallen to the wayside a little. I have always crafted since a child although I do not remember being taught how to knit or sew.
My earliest knitting memory is being around age seven and being helped by a friend on the lower playground how to fix some of my stitches.
I also remember doing many an embroidery kit as child and at the age of 16 I sewed my sister in law a complete layette and baby bag set. I am very much one of the make do brigade as I have often unpicked voluminous adult dresses to make children’s clothes and before I do discard any clothes the buttons, zips, trimmings are all checked and removed if needed for other projects. Hence the HUGE button stash too.
I have recently rediscovered patchwork so all my odd scraps are now being cut into squares ready for patchwork.
I regularly destash and give yarn or fabric to friends, charity shops, schools and craft groups.
My other passions are reading and movies
