Kirsty Lucas' Profile

About

I am a full time mother of three little children, and when I get a spare moment, usually when they have gone to bed, is when I set to work on my other little creations.

I adore making things. As a child I would make lace bags full of lavender and rose petals and sell them on a stall, more often it was my neighbours who would buy them. I used to stand next to my dad in his shed and watch him work, or help lay the bricks when he built an extension on our cottage in Lincolnshire.

There is nothing more exciting, rewarding and satisfying than the start and finish of a project. My biggest project was in 2004 when my wonderful mum Emily, gave my husband and myself the opportunity to buy a houseboat. We went to Amsterdam and bought a 1920's 50ft Dutch Barge to live aboard.

I handled all the logistics and had her delivered to Sheffield Victoria Quays where she was moored. Simon and I completely gutted her. We redesigned her and from scratch we made the interior on our own. It was hard work but well worth it, and given the chance we'd do it again!

We had 4 happy years living aboard Vrouwe Maartje, then in 2008 my husband was offered a job here in the US. So here we are and I share with you my latest obsessions.
I hope you enjoy them as I have enjoyed making them.
