My name is Minnie and I am from Hertfordshire.
I like machine embroidery (because I'm lazy at sewing by hand), dress making (well I can make a simple skirt), cross stitching (that's a lie), resin jewellery making ( I nearly blinded myself doing that) and needle felting. I can not knit to save my life.
I studied Philosophy at the University of Reading.
I love a challenge and all things quirky and vintage.
I love Hamsters, Dogs, Polka Dots, Vintage things, Floral prints, kawaii, buttons and jewllery.
P.S I have a blog.http://www.minnieburton.co.uk
P.P.S I have also just joined twitter and nobody is my friend really so if you could take pity.... :S www.twitter.com/minnieburton
