Hi! I am 31 years old, originally from Thurso in the Highlands but now living in West Midlands. I am married and have 2 children, Oliver who will be 6 in November and Sophia who turns 3 next month. I have had almost a 3 year break from any crafting after Sophia was born. I returned to cross-stitch (which I began aged 9) as I find this stash easier to handle and deal with than my card making and scrapbooking stash (which is in need of a massive sort out) when I have little fingers that like to explore everything. I am hoping to start making cards and scrapbook pages again very soon but for now enjoy stitching relaxed out in front of the tv once the wee ones are in bed. (Updated Sept 2011)I do try and thank you all for looking in my gallery and leaving your kind comments. They are very much appreciated. Thank You!
