I have my own home to furnish and finish and this is a record of my efforts to do this without buying newly made finished items and making as much as I can by hand. I can cook and bake but I am no chef. I can sew and crochet somewhat but can’t knit for toffee. I have no preference for either expensive or cheap things, I just like pretty, homely comfy looking things. I’m an amature gardener and have also turned a rough hand to wood working. One day I’d like to be able to make most of my own clothes, especially blouses and dresses. I appreciate my good fortune in living near a very useful street of craft and secondhand and charity shops.
Every once in a while everything just seems to fall in to place and everything happens for a reason.
