For anyone who doesn't know me...I am really Sharon, 44 years old from Manchester, UK. I have 2 kids - Rachael, 14 and Luke, 12. They are both amazing (most of the time) and I am so lucky that they are 'mine'. I also have 2 demented cats - Biskey and Smudge who rule the roost. Biskey is a soppy so and so and loves to be curled up on someone's lap. At night, he sleeps on my feet although he often has more of the bed than I get!
I started stitching in 1995 when I wanted something different for my then boyfriend (now hubby) for our first Valentine's Day together. I walked past a cake decorating shop every day going to and from work and noticed these cute little cross stitch cards they had. I went in and the rest is history.
There was no charting for the initials in the middle. I just decided to do them myself. Thankfully my stitching has improved a bit since then!!
One thing that I am looking forward to this year is finishing my degree which will then free up around 20 hours a week for
housework and jobs round the house stitching. I am going to make up for the last few years where the coursework has stopped me from enjoying myself.
I have loads of favourite designers so won't bore you with them all. Just have a look through my WIP's/UFO's list on the right hand side of my blog to see what I am into! Favourite fabric is jobelan by a mile and discovering Sparklies, Crafty Kitten and Steph's Fabby's has greatly enhanced my fabric stash.
One thing that I really love doing is being online and reading lots of different stitchy blogs. There are several people that although I have never met them, I class as friends now who I have met through blogging. One day I would love to meet up with them all!
Anything else you would like to know, just ask!!
