I have always enjoyed making things and there is a great feeling of satisfaction in transforming a broken and useless item, into something fresh, new and usable again. I absolutely hate waste! My motto is ‘Turn something you don’t use, into something that you do!’
For the last few years I have been looking for ways to satisfy my need for creativity and devised a way of re-using old cashmere jumpers into fingerless gloves and neck warmers. I use cashmere because of its excellent heat retaining properties and the fact that is so luxurious and soft to the touch.
Recently I have been transforming old pairs of jeans into aprons. The fabric is hardwearing and as I use every part of the jeans, nothing goes to waste.
I am constantly looking for inspiration for new transformations, so watch this space.
I am never happier than when I am busy creating. I can always justify a fun project over housework or chores any day! I have a wonderfully understanding husband!
My hobbies include sewing, knitting, crochet, sketching, tending our garden and growing a modest amount of veg. In fact, I’ll have a go at anything.
I walk over the nearby hills with Perkins almost daily, breathing in the clean air and taking in the scenery. There’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.
I am happiest with all my family around me and enjoy visits from them during the school holidays.
