About

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.

AND if you want to read my blog about general randomness, shoes, shopping and hamsters...

I got your comment and yea, i don't really wear jewelry. i would love a plush if you want to make one but I would also enjoy a bag or scarf or hat. even stationary or key chain. i'm pretty easy going i just know that I would not use any jewelry- sorry.
