I am happiest when I am doing things with my hands - gardening, cooking, sewing, painting, walling ........ and I've been sewing on and off for all my life. As I kid designed outfits for my dolls, went to tailoring classes with my Mum as a teenager, took in alterations and repairs when my children were young, taught my daughter to cross-stitch, and have made cushions and curtains for my various homes over the years.
Currently I am experiencing "small space living" which makes one focus on what is important and necessary, and what is just clutter.
