WE LIVED FIRSTLY IN LONDON (BAYSWATER) IN FRONT OF HYDE PARK.

I WORKED IN LONDON IN THE INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE PILOTS ASSOCIATION

FOR 7 YEARS AND ENJOYED MY WORK THERE , ALSO GETTING FRIENDS

COLLEAGUES THAT ACCEPTED ME AS AN ENGLISH PERSON.



WE LIVED IN LONDON FOR 22 YEARS WHERE WE BOUGHT A HOUSE AND WE

HAD TWO CHILDREN MARINA AND MANUEL.

I HAVE DONE CRAFTS SINCE THE AGE OF 5 AS I LEARNED EMBROIDERY AND

CROCHET, KNITTING ETC.

IN THE 70S I TAUGHT MYSELF MACHINE KNITTING AND STARTED DESIGNING


DRESSES, JUMPERS AND SUITS THAT I SOLD TO SHOPS IN LONDON , CANADA,


AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND ETC FOR AWHILE.

I DECIDED IN THE EIGHTIES TO SELL DIRECT TO THE PUBLIC AND DECIDED TO

GO TO CRAFT FAIRS AND HAVE A FEW FASHION SHOWS WITH MY OUTFITS.

MANY OF MY DRESSES WERE BOUGHT FOR GARDEN PARTIES IN

BUCKINGHAM PALACE, ALSO TO ASCOT RACES ETC

I WAS LUCKY AS I HAD AS SOME CUSTOMERS, SOME MEMBERS OF THE ROYAL

FAMILY AND ALSO WIVES OF FAMOUS PEOPLE.

ALSO IN THE 80'S KNITWEAR WAS HIGH FASHION.

I WAS VERY LUCKY AND SOLD QUITE A LOT AND MADE MYSELF KNOWN BY THE

BUYERS THAT KEPT TELLING FRIENDS, ADVERTISING ETC.

AT THE SAME TIME I WAS ALSO BUSY INTERPRETING IN COURTS ETC AS I AM A

REGISTERED INTERPRETER FOR SCOTLAND YARD.

I EXPERIENCED A VERY INTERESTING TIME TAKING PART IN VARIOUS CASES IN

COURTS ALL OVER LONDON AND I MANAGED TO HAVE A CASE IN THE OLD

BAILEY..VERY EXCITING TIME.

IN 1986 WE SOLD OUR HOUSE IN THORNTON HEATH (SOUTH EAST LONDON)

AND BOUGHT A SMALL HOTEL IN WORTHING (WEST SUSSEX)



I WAS TOO BUSY WITH MY HUSBAND AND CHILDREN TAKING CARE OF GUESTS

THAT CAME TO HAVE A HOLIDAY BY THE SEA.

I COULD SEA THE SEA AGAIN FROM MY WINDOW AND THAT WAS LOVELY.

WE DID IT FOR 13 YEARS BUT THE WORK WAS TOO MUCH SO WE DECIDED TO

RETIRE TO TAKE IT EASIER.

WE BOUGHT THIS HOUSE AND FOR 2 YEARS WE TOOK IT EASY DECORATING..

I WAS GETTING A BIT BORED AND MY SON INTRODUCED ME TO EBAY.

WELL I GOT INTERESTED IN THIMBLES AND STARTED SELLING THEM.

BUT I WANTED TO MAKE MY OWN SO I STARTED MAKING THEM IN 2002.

I AM PLEASED THIMBLES I MADE ARE IN ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD AND WHO

KNOWS IN 100 YEARS SOMEBODY MAY AUCTION ONE OF MY THIMBLES

SOMEWHERE.(*_*)

THIMBLE GUILD THE BEST COMPANY OF THIMBLES HAS ME AS AN ARTIST AND I

MAKE THIMBLES FOR THEM THAT APPEAR IN THE THIMBLE GUILD CATALOGUE

EVERY MONTH.

MY CRAFTS HELP ME AS MY HEALTH IS NOT TOO GOOD.

IN 2001 I WAS BITTEN BY A MOSQUITO IN MY LEFT LEG AND THAT MADE ME

HAVE POST POLIO SYNDROME. I HAD POLIO IN THAT LEG WHEN I WAS 9 YEARS

OLD AND I THOUGHT I WAS CURED OF IT. BUT IT RETURNED WITH AWFUL PAINS

AND I CAN NOT WALK MUCH NOW

. I HAVE TO TAKE PAIN KILLERS EVERYDAY.TO ALIVIATE THE PAIN.

THE PAINS SOMEDAYS ARE SEVERE AND DOING CRAFTS IT HELPS, AS IT

DISTRACTS ME. IT IS THERAPY.

I HAVE ALSO DIABETES AND COMPLICATIONS OF IT, IS ALSO A BIG PAIN.

SO FOR ME CREATING A CRAFT IS THE BEST THERAPY I CAN HAVE .

I LOVE DOING THEM AND ALSO KNOWING THAT IT GIVES PLEASURE TO PEOPLE.


I MAKE LOTS OF EXTRAS AS I LOVE GIVING PRESENTS WITH EVERY ORDER.


I LIKE PEOPLE TO BE HAPPY WHEN THEY OPEN MY PARCELS.


.
I HAVE BEEN MAKING THIMBLES, BUTTONS, PENDANTS, BEADS ETC SINCE 2002

AND HOPE TO DO MORE FOR A FEW MORE YEARS.
