About me

Gender Female
Location Lincolnshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I share the house and garden with my husband. I hate housework but love gardening. I have outgrown my small garden and spend many hours drooling over gardening books, dreaming of what I will do when I get my half acre of land! I also enjoy reading, baking, jewellery making, papercrafting, have recently started sewing and then there is felt making. I would love to have enough space for an art studio/craft room, but make do with the sitting room table, sitting room, bedroom and spare bedroom for now...
