About

My gratitude for your custom will know no bounds, my humble offerings have developed over time as an extension to the remedial therapy that
followed a calamitous car crash wherein I lost my arms. Subsequently I have striven to become the Christy Brown of wool needle felting. You may remember Daniel Day Lewis' portrayal of the tortured artist in "My Left Foot", like him I have struggled, though in my case it has been learning to hold a felting needle between my toes rather than a paint brush. I am soon, though, to transfer to my right foot because of a recent diagnosis of leprosy - highlighted by my right big toe dropping off.
Please, I do not ask for your

I was called away by the low groans of pain from my bravely suffering Siamese triplets; it took me sometime to hop to their side, where I blew
on their fevered foreheads (I can't afford air conditioning on a war widow's pension) in a vain attempt to assuage their agony.

So, please visit my humble shop and I pray that some, oh so reasonably
priced, trinket catches your fancy.

Seriously, :o)

Welcome
Kit

*smoke free home (very difficult to light em up after the loss of my toe)

* There are no such beings as Siamese triplets and I still have most of my body parts.
