I am inspired often by mother nature herself, and am addicted to flowers, in particular daisies- a life long obsession which started as a child. Also I find vintage objects and crafts fascinating. I get a real buzz out of breathing new life into vintage fabrics, buttons and ribbons.
My crafts range from needle-felting (which I learnt in a grade 2 art class!), sewing by hand and machine(taught by my grandmother), and have recently become obsessed with the vintage craft of the flower loom.
I hope you enjoy browsing!
