My Craft

I was a tailor(ess)  for a few years before my marriage, and then later I became a Sample Maker and worked in a couple of Design Rooms. The samples were for the buyers of Marks & Spencer, and a few other big stores. In this capacity I have made men’s suits, ladies fashion jeans, nightgowns and blouses.

I’ve always been interested in needlework and this page will include all my experiments in various needle crafts.

    Good morning, Carol. You are so talented! I always wanted a Cathedral Window Patchwork, but I think it is too difficult for me to make it 😉
    Thanks for visiting and following my blog. It is very nice to have a chance visiting your blog. I enjoy reading it a lot. Helen

    • Hey! don’t put yourself down; I’m sure you could do it too. This was the first and only one I’ve created. I just followed a library book instruction. It looks far more difficult than it actually is, the skill is in pressing the fabric into folds first. Trouble with me is, that once I’ve had a go at that, I want to try something else, ha ha.

  3. HI Carole! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and deciding to follow. I’ve really enjoyed looking through your lovely site. Though I’m from the U.S., I lived in England for a bit (London), I love cross-stitch, and I admire anyone who tackles a mystery/thriller! Good for you for pursuing life & writing. I look forward to following you!
