About


I have my her roots in the Thames until I was transplanted to Eastside in 2008.She traded a career in pediatric nursing to find my way on a new continent. This change enabled the time and opportunity to explore, create and enjoy fibers to a new level.
I can trace her family roots back to glove-makers in the 1800’s through to ivory cutters at the turn of the 1900’s.Both my Mum and I are members of the embroidery guild on different sides of the globe.
I am terrible at updating my blog.Is rather a historical object now but you an see some of my work there.

Hay-o Debs!!
I remember seeing you say that you were saving up all your tea wrappers to make a paper quilt (?) I have also been saving up my wrappers, but had thought of making some kind of collage or something. Anyway your idea seem very interesting and I'd love to hear more about it if you dont mine ;) TTYL <3 <3

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

If I was anywhere near you, I would just give you a big hug! You should have seen me running off like a loon from the post office! I was quite a sight, running and maniacally laughing while brandishing a simple yellow envelope. I'm quite sure I've scared a few people. Happy HA.

I would like help if you do not mind, I'm not too sure that I have done everything correctly with setting it up, setting out guidelines, pairing people together, ect.
I hope it is ok for me to just create a swap, I grew tired of waiting for a swap that I could participate in (being a newbie myself) and thought scarves are simple to make and there were others that were interested in another round on the super scarf swap.
Any thoughts, ideas or advice is very much appreciated! Thank you for offering and I look forward to hearing from you!

haha thanks for the warm welcome.

I love cardmaking and papercraft. Though thanks for the warm wishes of a birthday but your a month off! I'm almost a christmas baby!

I've looked at the happygrams and I've very much so looked at doing some. I'm currently doing a swap with Oddbreed and hopefully one with Kiddo soon!

By the way! I've gotten the inchies itch! I've been addicted to them!
