Welcome to my little corner of the blog world. My name is Kerrie I am a daughter, mother of 5, and grandmother of 11 (5 natural, 6 step grandies - al great fun and very precious young people) - if you stick around your will meet them all on and off. I am a 'have-a-go-at-anything crafter', particularly love sewing, knitting and crochet - lots of other crafts have passed through the realms of my corner over the many years I have been creating (since I was about 8 years old).
The most recent photo ( I avoid photos as much as possible) of me at my son, Rheis' wedding last November.
I live just out of the town of Griffith, NSW in Australia. We are in an irrigation area here which make life that little bit easier when the state is in drought - it also enable the production of all types of crops, livestock and manufacturing (grains, fruit, vegetable, grapes, sheep, cattle, poultry, and all associated manufacturing and supply industries).
The women of my family. The top photo is one taken of my sister, mother and myself at my son wedding in November. The bottom photo is of my two granddaughters, Abbey & Karah. We are now bringing up Karah as her mother (our daughter Naomi) passed away in July last year - and aren't I finding it hard going back to being a mother of a school age child!!!!
A few of the items I have made during the last 12 months. My crafting/sewing time has been cut back quite a bit now that I am running around with school things, sport and dancing again. I also spend a lot of time with my mother - she is 82 and has not been well for a while. We do sit and crochet together when I am at her house with her.
We live on 50 acres - my husband, Greg, works a full time job as well as growing Lucerne that we sell. We also sell grains, chaff (that we make) and rice straw (a lot locally and a lot we take down to Canberra). We have all the paraphernalia that goes with a hoarding farmer husband!! The usual animals of course - dogs (too many) cats (way too many - no mice or rats though), horses (only 1 is ours, the others belong to our sons), sheep (out in the paddocks of course).
Our life is as simple as we can make it - we have our own meat, grow most of our winter vegies and a few summer, we have planted fruit trees which are just bearing fruit this year (yummo) - I always try to cook all our meals at home but the pressures of raising a 10 year old and looking after mum get a bit much time wise at times and the good old takeaway pizza or fish and chips appear on our menu occasionally.
That is probably enough about me for now - don't want to bore you all silly!! Please click around my blog posts - and me, well I am off to start checking out some of the 400 other blog party goers!! Luckily Vicki is leaving the list and links up for the rest of the year so I can keep going back until I have checked them all out!!
