I have been knitting since the age of four and was taught to crochet when I was seven and I have to be making something all the time.
I live on the Northumberland coast, very close to the sea and I will be here for ever now!
We have three large dogs, Shadow a rough collie, Austin a Labrador cross and Charlie, our youngest who is a yellow Labrador. We also have six cats, Maddie a tortoiseshell, her brother Louie who is a long haired ginger, Purdie a rag doll (came to us after many litters) she is now retired and just relaxing as cats do. We also have Lucky a black boy and his sister Rosie who bothe came last year from someone who couldn't cope and last but not least Annie, a little tabby who had lived with Purdie and was originally called Stanley!!!!! She got over that.
I spend my time crocheting mainly in the winter as it keeps me warm, and I do lots of other crafte when the days get longer and I can see better.
I decided to try to sell online as I'm not up to fairs any more. I reached the age of 70 in January and my Folksy shop is my birthday gift to myself.
I do hope people like my stuff and I can't wait to hear from my first customer!
