About

My Etsy shop is a way for me to showcase my creativity using vintage items to upcycle.

I am a life-long crafter starting out teaching myself to crochet when I was about 15. It was about 1970 and the American influence was in all craft publications, so hence I was into red, white and blue at that time. I loved learning the craft of crochet and went on to making jumpers, shawls, and various home decor items.

In my 20's I went to learn the craft of hand patchwork. I finished making a baby blanket and realised how much work goes into making hand made items.

Painting and drawing then interested me so started many courses in drawing, oil painting, watercolours, pastel and folk art.

It wasn't until I retired that had the confidence to learn sewing and took a class at my local sewing store bought a sewing and embroidery machine and off I went on another crafty exploration. This led me to opening my Etsy store to showcase my items.

My love of vintage items to has led me to up upcycle discarded objects and turn into new and useful items once again. I have a love for fabrics and trims and started making cushion covers out of vintage materials including wool blankets laces, beautiful fabrics, tea towels and embroideries. I make most of my items out of vintage finds I collect on my travels.

I have collected vintage woollen blankets and upholstery fabrics, buttons, beads, doilies, tablecloths and anything I think I can use. I really do appreciate all the effort and time that goes into making a hand made item and hope you do too.
