I started this blog as a way to journal and record and share the crafts I enjoy, to learn from the many wonderful crafters out there in the blogging world, and in a nutshell .... to have fun!!
I love crocheting, knitting, working with felt, and cross stitching. Beadwork and quilting are on the horison as new crafts I hope to conquer! Have dabbled with tatting and Tunisian crochet. Baking and trying new recipes are favourite pastimes; I make a great curry and love to end meals with a stunning dessert or pudding, made with love, by me of course!
My working career spans most of my adult life, with owning a hotel once and also running an Italian restaurant. Retirement is a most welcome new chapter, a slower pace, time to craft, and read in the sun, which we have in abundance here in Sandton, South Africa.
