Crafting runs in my blood. When she wasn’t whipping up some delicious sweet treat in the kitchen, my Nan always seemed to have a crochet hook in her hand. My mum knitted and wasquite the dressmaker. She had a wardrobe full of her creations as well as making me the most amazing fancy dress costumes. So good that nobody believed they were handmade. I truly wish that I had learnt my skills from them, but I was too busy exploring the world always distracted by things I thought were more exciting.
After they passed on I finally decided to settle down and learn their crafts. Crochet came first and before long my girls were sporting many a hooked hat and cuddling lots of cute amigurumi. Next I decided that I should really do something about my fabric addiction. It was all very well collecting it but I figured that perhaps wearing it might be more fun. I took a quick, 8 week dressmaking class, made a vintage style dress and I was addicted. Now I have an overlocker and I am determined to dress the world!
I like to think I can turn my hand to anything, but knitting still eludes me…
