Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile Blogger

Thank you so much Dani aka teddyandtottie  and Anny of itssewanny for the nominations for The Versatile Blogger Award

and also to Amy of cloudcoucou for a nomination for the **Super Sweet Blogging Award** which I really appreciate but haven’t got around to accepting yet.

7 things about myself

I started this blog in the hopes of connecting with like minded crafters wherever they may be. It has meandered along with my life in the UK and the US and become a visual log of places I’ve discovered and enjoyed, my quilting, knitting and crochet projects, snapshots of the seasons through my garden and shed, fabulous fabric and vintage finds…… much more than I initially imagined. I’ve been inspired by so many of you to try new techniques and stitches, use my camera more and appreciate the things around me.

This blog has allowed me to connect with people from 72 different countries!

I’m a regular contributor to Popular Patchwork magazine and love to share my passion and skills.

I have a sewing machine in the UK (Juki) and one in the US (Bernina), well I had too 🙂

I miss my garden when I’m in the city (I have been tempted to guerilla garden in Central Park).

I miss cocktail bars, restaurants and galleries when I’m not in the city.

I love thrift store/charity shopping/flea markets and vintage fairs.
