What are your hobbies?

Apart from crafting - cooking (and eating), reading, fashion, music gigs and cinema.

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

Sewing, knitting, drawing, greeting cards

What do you craft along to?

Any British daytime TV, preferably cooking shows.

What was the first project you ever made?

The first thing I vividly remember is a painted clay rabbit in school that my mum still keeps in the kitchen. He's grey with a green bow-tie.

What are your favorite items to make?

I love to reconstuct t-shirts when I get the chance to visit my overlocker (it's currently at my parents' as my flat is too small for it) and I love drawing new ideas in my sketchbook.

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Sadly my first love of sewing (particularly t-shirt reconstruction) is on the back-burner for now due to my tiny London flat and full-time job. But I have started an Etsy shop, selling prints and greeting cards (handily portable crafts!) and hope to branch back into sewing as soon as possible.

At the moment I love Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Bowerbirds, and Why?. My all-time favorites include Pixies, Pavement, Modest Mouse and The Smiths.
London; there's no place like home. Closely followed by Barcelona, Shanghai and Paris.
Anything from Wes Anderson or the Coen Brothers
I prefer non-fiction as my attention span is quite short. My favourite author is Bill Bryson.
I love nearly all food as long as it's vegetarian, especially Mexican. And Marmite on toast!
