Year after year, I have seen the most beautiful bags, hanging up on the Button Angel stall, at craft shows. And time after time, I have asked whether I could buy one, ready made, only to be told "no, they are a kit!" They contain lots of embroidery, patchwork and appliqué and as a non sewer, I didn't think I would ever have one. Anyway, after learning to sew I took the plunge and bought the kit that had the least embroidery and appliqué on and decided to give it a go. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. (The front is the same as the back)
and I've finally finished the Sophie's Universe Crochet Along. It was a huge learning curve, as nearly every one of the 113 rounds was different, but I learnt so much along the way! I used the same colours as Dedri, the designer, used in hers - too much learning new stitches to do, without having to think about colour choices too!
I've been married to Tim for 26 years and we have two daughters, Natalie and Lauren. I'm a 'wannabe' artist, who, whilst not naturally artistic, enjoys having a go at anything crafty. Sewing is my latest obsession.
