Me at 22, Alex's 1st birthday.
Barefoot and pregnant and blissfully happy!
Where I belong.
In the wild, wild woods.
Me aged 4 months.
The day before my Dad died.

Hello!! This whole Website is about home and family and I
suppose I'm the centre of the family. When I married
at 18 I had no idea I'd end up with six children,
but what a wonderful adventure it has been! I have had so
many lucky breaks, finding a good man, and my various
happy homes. The family come first but when it's ME
time my overriding passion is my crafts. There are a few
crafts I don't do, it would be easier to list
those...here's a selection of what I do (in no
particular order). Knitting, sewing, crochet, quilting,
embroidery, cross-stitch, folk art painting, wood
burning, dried flower creations, rug braiding,
stencilling, rubber stamp art, candlemaking, doll and
teddy-bear making, corn-dolly making, macrame, beadwork,
leatherwork, papier-mache, jewellery making, and of
course this...my Webpage!! I also grow and prepare my own
herbs for culinary, craft and medicinal use. Other than that I like hiking, music, movies,
cooking, and eating out with friends. I like sport about
as much as I like being kicked in the teeth, so Martin
and I have a wonderful arrangement, he gets to watch
whatever he wants on TV (usually baseball this time of
year) because I've got my head in my craftwork and
it's just a hum in the background. I could go on but
don't stay on this page, go and see the others!!!
