About

I'm Claire. 27, recently married and live in Wales with my husband and our daughter.

I've been sewing since i can remember, and got my 1st proper sewing machine for christmas a few years ago Happy
I decided to learn crochet and knitting, and so far i'm a lot better at the crochet, but trying to change that!!

I LOVE my music, my favourite band being The Pixies <3... i am obsessed with bags (i have millions!), and most of the time if i see something i like, i think "Can i make that?" before i buy it!
I love making things as gifts for people...most of the people i know aren't crafty at all!!

I've taken part in the Newbie Vs Vet swap with Nora C as my vet, and the Bag swap (a 3 way swap), and also a personal 'owl' themed swap with Pammerz. Happy

Ha I actually just used a slip stitch for these ones. Pretty good, huh? I use the magic loop thing for crocheted plushies mostly. It is much easier than slip stitching sometimes. Happy

Hello, yeaaah you spelted it write. it's a nice town, i have been there too.
John my partner had have a house there years ago.
so we had to do our shoppings in a bigger town, he lived at that time just in between to tiny villages.
Frikandellen. Yeaaah they are yummie. i have eaten them too, but now i'm a vegie so ... i eat now other things.
but i love the smell of it.
Did you eat the chips we have strange versions of them. i loved the patat oorlog the most .(translated chips in war.LOL) and with other strange things on it.
Ooooh are you left handed, did you know that you must asked to a crochet or knitting person to sit in front of you so you can see the methode in mirrow wise and for you on your best side.
my mum was a crafting teacher and learned all the left handed kiddo's to crochet and knit, and there are some left handed ways for knitting.
i knit with my left hand , they told me it was the germane methode , it's better for you wrists and shoulders.
and for me for to spare my right best side for other things.
i have some troubles with my arms and hands to move.
if you wants to know the methode i will search for a side for you.
I like the books you have, i have some links with smart ideas for knitting and crochet if you wants them i can send you them.

noooo it's not soooo far but too not so closely my move.
i will go to an other town, from the middle to the seashore, humm almost nearby the seashore.
it's nearby amsterdam i was born in amsterdam and raised so i still know this city too well.LOL and i did there the art academy when i was 33 years.
it was nice and a great time but i thought i don't want to go back to amsterdam, Haarlem is the town where i will go to live, it's an old city too and a little bit smaller but friendly and nice.
i will got a appartment there in the middle of the old centre so i will live next to the theatres and museons.
now it's all far away and i have missed the humour of the nord Hollanders.LOL
it's differend of the utrechts jokes-S
so i will go back to my roots;-D
they think in may.
i'm excitihing like a child of it.;-D
hey have a great eve again , and be crafty.;-D xxxxx
