1.My passion for embroidery started at an early age, watching Jan Beaney on Pebble Mill At One with my Mum.
I was off school with chicken pox!

2.I worked as a manager for Laura Ashley for Eighteen years ( Home Furnishings)
Part time the last ten years to fit in with my two children, every weekend, evenings etc..
As soon as my husband got back from work it was my time to go to work!

3. I gave it up to work in an inner city school assisting in textile and art classes.
Hard work but I get weekends and school holidays!

4. I have always wanted to do an applied art degree, just can't finance it.

5.My favourite shops are vintage and charity shops !

6.I started a lunch time stitch club at school.

7.My favourite programme was Inspector Morse.

Hope that was not too boring!

The felt flowers above will be at a craft fair on Sunday, my friend Jane is taking them to a fair in Rugby.
I am going with my daughter to London to visit my youngest sister, can't wait to see her.

Bye for now.x

I loved Inspector Morse sorry when he died.

I like the other BBC mystery that takes place in the cute cottage slips mind now. but lots of people get murdered and the married with daughter inspector solves the crimes.

flowers are delightful and all the work you do with kids very important. theyll remember you when they are old like me. ;-)
