About me

Gender Female
Occupation Retired teacher
Location Lincolnshire, United Kingdom
Introduction In my prime (50 plus taxes), living a relaxed English city-based lifestyle with the option of escaping to a country cottage with my beloved. I have a particular enthusiasm for Japanese textiles and techniques and, after a very special trip to Japan in 2012, my stitching projects are becoming increasingly influenced by Japanese style. I try to ignore my chronic illnesses and eat mainly vegetables chopped up in my Thermomix to maintain my health and to fund my fabric and travel habits! I especially want to return to Japan and I hope to visit New Zealand again soon. I have two wonderful grown up children and two grandsons, one being the gorgeous Sam, who appears frequently on these pages.
Interests My gorgeous children and grandsons, quilting, gentle gardening and enjoying gardens, reading, travelling and making the most of this life.
