I sew for my family and this includes my pets

I grew up on farms in New Zealand. Some of my earliest memories are of my father bringing home a little lamb that had lost his mother and a bird without any tail feathers. I remind him of this whenever he teases me for my homeful of animals.

I currently share my home with: George a standard schnauzer; Pooky a mini dacshund; Pixie the rabbit; Gordon, Doris and Daisy the Indian Runner Ducks; 5 chickens; 5 guinea pigs, a turtle and a huge tank of African Cichlids. Oh, and my husband, son, daughter in law and two grandchildren.

My mother started teaching me to sew when I was 7 years old. After clothing my toys, I started making blankets and beds for the family pets. The main challenge was how long it took to sew by hand. I must confess many of these first projects did not survive the first wash.

Thankfully nowadays I have a very well equipped studio in a quiet corner of our home. My balcony overlooks the backyard full of animals. I spend many, many hours drawing, designing, cutting and sewing. I have a collection of sewing machines both vintage and very modern. These days the items I make are tested on my animals, my grandchildren and my huge washing machine. They come out quite smart and very, very sturdy.
