Fast shipping from "across the pond!" Seriously it was a fast journey from England to the USA! It's just beautiful!

A day without crafting is like a day without sunshine. And when life throws you scraps, make a quilt...

Although I have always crafted, I suppose it all really escalated after our 5th house-move in 14 years. My younger daughter made a new school-friend and wanted something special to take to her birthday party. I painted a small chest-of-drawers for her, and then family and friends began asking if I'd paint them some for presents. I also started to design and knit Tea Cosies, and the favourites seemed to be the ones based on little English cottages, with thatched roofs, and flowers round the doors.
For some years I juggled full-time Nursing with raising my family, painting and knitting, but now I've wound down my career, my children are grown, we've moved house yet again, and I've more time to devote to all sorts of crafts - but most of all I love to knit my English Tea Cosy Cottages. I just cannot contemplate life without crafting!
