I think of myself as an old fashioned cook, I serve the sort of food you would find at a country pub, (meat, veg, potatos and lots of lovely gravy or sauces), all very detrimental to my waistline. So you get the picture, middle aged, oveweight housewife, sitting at dust encrusted PC surrounded by 2 (very spoilt)fluffpuppies. I love to sew, crochet, cross stitch, read (thrillers, biographys). I have a weakness for china and delftware.I have a house full of stuff but have yet to collect the find of the century. I have recently discovered the art of quiltmaking. I love this new craft and hoping to master the techniques required to make lots of beautiful quilts. Todate I have made 2 mediocre ones and one not so mediocre. Practice makes perfect.
