I am a 27yr old girl from the sunny Gold Coast on the East coast of Australia. I live with my partner Steve, my son Jack, two cats and one dog.
NB: My spelling is atrocious, please don't hold it against me.
I love making amigurumi and larger crochet toys. They sit on my desk at work which now looks more like a toy store than a work space.
I've recently started sewing crafts. I've been trying my hand at embroidery and felt Christmas decorations. As my ability with this is rather basic I am calling my style 'primary school chic'. Hopefully my skills will improve in time for Christmas.
