Welcome Possums!

11pm on a Monday night and I sit here after a dinner of beans on toast…..oh the joys of living with a chef – long empty evenings. Maybe that’s what drove me to craft!

It’s not that bad really, I cook proper food nearly every night but sometimes you can’t beat a quick meal – more time for blogging šŸ™‚

Sooooooo where to start? To be honest I have no idea. This all started many years ago when I asked for a sewing machine for my 16th birthday. However there was no space to keep the sewing machine set-up so it was hauled up and down to the attic each time I wanted to use it, which was a LOT of hassle….and so it went away for good and never came down. How sad – I know! That was untill college was all done and dusted and the recession hit Ireland and I packed up my belongings and headed to Australia for work.

Once in Australia I got a job and a home and I suddenly had a spare room to fill………… so I got a sewing machine and fabric, LOTS OF FABRIC.

On a trip home to Ireland in November I dragged my mother into this. We rocked up at the Stitching and Knitting Expo in Dublin’s RDS. Mum has knitted since she was pregnant with me HOWEVER….. after knitting me a new Christmas stocking for Australia she had to succumb to tennis elbow and admit defeat with knitting for now. So she signed up for a quilting class and is now WHOOPING MY BUTT at this! Perfect work by mummy two hoots – I am very proud and jelous of her skills whilst I struggle with being self taught here.

Here is a picture of mummy two hoots’ first and AMAZING quilt top!


And the obsession begins: Quilts, clothes, furniture…. and baking

I want you all to follow me on this great adventure, join me, share with me and most of all have fun with me!

Things that I SHOULD be doing at the moment

  • working on things to donate for a craft charity auction
  • working on things to sell at market
  • actually finishing my first quilt
  • starting my Lenora Jenkins Block A Month Quilt before block number2 arrives!
  • fill out my blog…populate the empty pages
  • bake something new each week
  • keep my new veggie garden alive
  • save money

ok that’s me done for today

Can’t wait to hear from you!!!!!
