Location Balclutha, South Otago, New Zealand
Introduction Solo Mum to one. Proud fabric hoarder. I have quite a large stash of fabrics bought over the years as well as too many patterns to counts and huge boxes of trims, motifs, elastics and accessories of all kinds. I first learnt the basic of sewing at intermediate school but it wasnt till my daughter was about 2 that I really began sewing. The first thing I made was a pink polar fleece sweatshirt for her and I have barely stopped since. I'm not a very technical sewer, I dont know much about the finer points of tailoring or adjusting patterns. Often I dont even know the correct terminology but most of the time my clothes and bags turn out ok and I think my sewing skills are getting better with everything I make.
Interests I love sewing, especially childrens clothes (mainly for my daughter) and I also love making bags. I waste far too much time online, but I justify that by not watching much TV. I also love books and reading and doing cryptic crosswords.
Favorite Movies Big Fish, March Of The Penguins, The Pursuit Of Happyness, among others.
