well...what to say? I am 40 something and have 4 children. I work full time in special needs education and am training to be an ESOL teacher. I have always loved to do arts and crafts in my spare time.

I mostly have made sewing projects - skirts and dresses for myself and i loved to experiment when making outfits for my children on special book days or history days at school.

I discovered this site around October 2010 and i think its the best thing ever. I hope to post some of my projects soon... maybe over the Christmas holidays.

I am especially interested in ideas that i can use with my students and those projects that relate to recycling.
I enjoys camping, walking, forests, peaceful surroundings (LOL!)being with friends, good company, my book club and this week sewing fabric flowers like the one posted by lemon jelly!!

Thanks so much for your comment on the Tia Dalma dress, it was great to make and I learnt a lot doing it but it took soooo long. I'm doing some more wench costumes at the moment and hope they are much quicker! Looks like you do lots of good crafting where you work. Keep in touch and let me know how it all goes! All the best, Janet
