New Year, new decisions, new skills.

During the later part of 2014 I found myself enjoying making small gifts that I could make.as gifts for friends and family and after speaking with a colleague I worked with a few years ago I came to the conclusion that I could sell some of these things for a little extra income that would then go towards new resources, enabling me to make more items.

During 2015 – I’ve decided to take IGCSE Maths to help with the work front. I’m also hoping 2015 will see me finally having teeth again after the cancer that took them from me looking forward to the simple things like bacon sandwiches.

I have also decided to learn machine quilting and machine embroidery through the website Craftsy.com

I hope to blog these adventures here so others can see how 2015 develops for me.

So far this year I’ve made:
