I love to sew, and craft with fabric and paper also. I am finding joy in creativity and sharing it with others.

When I am not sewing, you can find me out in the garden, reading a book, enjoying my two beautiful horses , Suzy and Indigo.... and kittens Bear and Gelly, and of course spending time with my gorgeous partner.
Please enjoy and share.
