What are your hobbies?

Eating, swearing, reading inappropriately trashy magazines.

What are your favorite crafts and what's your craft space like?

Anything food related. I admire patchwork and quilting greatly, but haven't got the patience to actually do it.

What do you craft along to?

I love BBC Radio 4, but the people who call in to Money Box Live are the most supremely annoying on the planet. I then disappear into the realms of the swearing hobby.

What was the first project you ever made?

There were a lot of Sindy outfits made from tissues and sellotape and quite a few botched Blue Peter Mother's Day Pen Holders etc

What are your favorite items to make?

New ways with sugar paste...

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
