About Me

Hello! I'm a British female engineer and I'm curious about everything. I've also just gone back to university for my masters degree in railway engineering, so I'm going to be busy :)

I really enjoy post and getting home to find something exciting or pretty waiting for me! It can make a bad day so much better to receive a lovely letter or gift.

I love travelling to new places, I have a long list of places I'd like to go - some local places for days out and some places I might never see, but I can dream :)

I really enjoy creating things and making things look pretty. My current projects are dressmaking, quilting, and watercolour painting.

I also love just watching beautiful views, sunsets, the stars, and getting to the middle of nowhere and just stopping to be alive :) I like to go out hill walking to see the views.

A few more specific things I like include: typography/ quotes, tarot, sewing, reading, Studio Ghibli, maps, art and museums.

I'd love to swap foreign sewing or quilting magazines, if anyone would like to trade :)
