At Last! My First Post!

After following the  wonderful blogs of others (for a long time) I have at last taken the plunge and started my own blog.  I have been so impressed by my lovely daughter's blog, Strawberry Laces, that I asked for her help  - which I really needed. So this first tentative start is thanks to her (thank you my lovely),

Why.. Well I love making things and trying to learn new crafts. I tend to be a bit of a butterfly learning a little of something (crochet, sewing etc) but never really becoming an expert at anything.  I wanted to share some of my creations and interests as well as keeping a record of our adventures as a family for us to look back on in the future.

I currently enjoy playing with wool sweaters and scarves, felting them and creating kooky brooches.  But my latest and newest Passion is Polymer Clay - thanks to the wonderful Karol at Coveted Artistry her super tuition has me completely hooked.  In part all inspired because my daughter wanted a Liquorice Allsorts bracelet which I have at last made for her.  Will write again soon. x
