Obsessive Hoarder

Thanks so much for having a look at my first post! I hope you like it and check out my future posts. I plan to post at least once a week about the different things that interest me. I love to craft and all things vintage. I will include tutorials and giveaways and would love to hear from you.
I'm afraid I'm an obsessive hoarder. I have trouble throwing anything away because you just never know when it may come in handy. Thankfully I have a very understanding husband who, shall we say, tolerates the overflowing baskets, drawers and boxes without too much complaining. He's very good really.
My crafty streak mainly came from my dad who has always been the kind of person to tinker with one project or other. As a child I remember him making household items using macramé and he ran a model making group. Both he and my mum encouraged me to make things (as long as I tidied up afterwards). I use a wide variety of crafting techniques, often combining different crafts to achieve the end result. I have a passion of wool and buttons so these feature heavily in the stuff I make.
Thanks again for looking. The next post will feature one of my favourite things to make... Owl doorstops and will include a tute!
Have a great day.

  1. Hello, I have just had your blog shared to me by Matt Leslie and its great, I just love your owl doorstops!! I have just signed up to do a crochet starter course for a couple of hours on Saturday but wondered if you would be interested in helping me learn more? Good luck with the blogging and hope to hear from you soon. Thanks Becky x
