About Me

I'm never sure what to write on profiles as I don't want to bore everyone!!

I love knitting and crochet and find both very relaxing. I've been working hard lately making Christmas pressies for loved ones.

I am also into photography. I like to take pictures of plants and flowers in macro. I use my photographs as inspiration for my knitted and crocheted pieces.

I like to listen to rock music but also enjoy jazz and classical. I read a lot - anything from historical fiction to modern warfare.

I live in a semi-rural village in southern England. It is really beautiful at the moment with the leaves turning golden and red on the trees. My husband, daughter and me love to take our dog, Waffles, walking in the woods and beside the lake near our home.

I am vegan and care deeply about the way animals are treated to produce food, clothing and other materials. I am also concerned about our environment and try to reuse and recycle wherever possible.

I am geeky in the extreme - I love cars, computer programming, gadgets. I love apocalyptic fashion, films and TV, like Revolution.

Things I like: rock music peace and quiet a beautiful sunrise or sunset blue skies snow Autumn herbal infusions ethically-produced natural and rustic wool different textures - soft, hard, rough, smooth - you get the idea! yoga meditation mindfulness reflexology the forest the seaside artists cards unusual stamps buttons made from natural materials handmade cards and envelopes spiritual people

Comment: Sorry about the late rating on this. I received your email, but not your image. I really thought I tried to contact you about it, but I can't find any evidence that I did. I saw you got 5's from your other partner, so please chalk this one up to my atrocious memory. It did sound like a lovely photo.

Comment: This card is perfect, no worries that you couldn't find a PC. I love the Flower Fairies of Cicely Mary Barker. I actually have a whole book of postcards of her work, so I'm happy to receive this. I wish you luck selling your knitwear.

Comment: Hi Jo, Thanks for the recommendation of Wolf Hall. There's a copy sitting on my shelf (my partner has read it already) but I hadn't got round to it -- your little note has pushed me on to read it! And thanks, too, for making the card extra special with the tiny butterflies!
Response: Dear hazelwitch3, Yours was my first swap and I really enjoyed putting it together however, I am receiving swaps from others and they have made beautiful envelopes so I must make more effort next time!
