I am one of 500 bloggers participating in GROW YOUR BLOG 2014 being organised by VICKIE over at 2 Bags Full. I am posting my post tonight as I will be travelling tomorrow - 25th January - the day when you can blog hop all over the world and make lots of new blogggy friends!!!!
Soooo... let me introduce myself!!! I am Kerrie - mother of 5 adult children (Adam, Nathan, Naomi, Rheis & Isaac), grandmother to 11 grandies ranging in age from 5 months to 16 yrs.
I am a daughter to a wonderful mum (Josie) and eldest sister in a family of 3 girls!
I have been married for 33 years to Greg; we live on a 50 acre property just out of Griffith, NSW Australia, in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (of which we are very appreciative when so much of our country is in the grips of severe drought!!)
I have been a sewer and crafter since the age of 9 when I started to knit a bright orange something for myself, and having a sewing class each week at primary school. I have travelled through many craft and sewing 'phases' since - cross stitch, long stitch, patchwork, candlewicking, ribbon embroidery, wool embroidery, quilting, fabric and glue craft (the tissue box covers and the photo frames!!), children's clothes, my own clothes, knitting, crochet, felting, paper making, dyeing, decoupage and the list goes on. I can honestly say that there is only two of the above that I don't do now and they are paper making & the fabric/glue craft.
We have a large vegie garden (not always full or successful); like to raise our own meat, and recycle when possible - we also enjoy having a meal out, and we do buy all of the above when we cannot supply our own!! It is fair to say I am happy and content with where I am at in my life right now - but I am always open for new experiences and ideas.
So welcome to my blog about my crafting and day to day living; please check out any of my previous posts and pages. Sometimes I post several times a week and sometimes not - depends on how busy life gets!!
