Rachel, with not much time for crafting at the moment... but the situation is improving.
I like sewing, stuff for around the house also decorative things like cross stitch,used to knit and crochet a lot as a child and recently started up again after a 20 year hiatus. I also like photography, scrapbooking, jewellery making, card making, home DIY, gardening, occasionally baking, absolutely anything crafty... typical jack of all trades master of none!
Cross stitch birth sampler (child is now nearly 2...), half a dozen other cross stitch samplers I have started over the last 20 years, one or two crochet projects.
Would like to knit again as it is so much more flexible than crocheting, but have discovered that my childhood technique is terrible and clumsy
All my life.
Age 10 chopped up a cushion cover from my friend's sewing stash to make a stuffed cat toy, only to discover her mum had intended to donate only the stuffing to the stash and the cover itself was somewhat prized.

Hi Rachel, the group is really growing, yeah! Thank you for putting your beautiful face on your profile. Easier to find your smile, than the rocking horse. ;)
Hi Rachel, Thanks for the warm welcome and really hoping to come out to one of the meetings soon though probably not this Sunday! Have a great weekend
Thanks Rachel! I am so happy you updated your group on the swim since otherwise I would have went tomorrow and wondered where all the people were. I am hoping to get out and do some intro runs with you. I think I will try to do the half marathon in September.
Hello Rachel. I'm so sorry, I did not see your message earlier today (still new to the site I guess). I did go and I would have loved to meet up. Next time I will check my messages before I leave home. I hope to meet you some other time!
Thanks Rachel! He did eventually sleep... from 3 til 6 with the fan pointed at him! Virginia tells me she and Janus had loads of fun with the fountain in your sandpit. Hopefully George and I will make it out to your next playdate!
Hi Rachel, it was nice swimming (or rather sitting around in water) with you and little Robyn. Hopefully we can do it next Tuesday again!
Hello Rachel, it was nice meeting you and Robyn today! Hope to see you both soon! Marta & Gloria
Hi Rachel, Welcome to the group, take a look at the calendar and see if anything suits, we look forward to meeting you both.
