My first ever blog......

So, I have finally succumbed and started a blog. I'm a Textiles teacher in a secondary school, a mum to 3 year old Harry, a wife to my Husband and Emily Smiles in between!

As my blog name might suggest I am a Jack of All Trades: knitting, crochet, sewing, decoupage (a new love), patchwork, quilting etc.... For as long as I can remember I have had some sort of sharp implement (needles, pins, scissors, scalpels) in my hand under the rouse of the Craft! Literally every spare moment is filled with making things, looking at fabrics, reading craft books and designing. So much so that the Husband has already threatened divorce if I buy any more yarn.....little does he know I hide it in the boot of the car for at least two weeks after purchase and then pretend its old stuff I just found under the bed.

Im incredibly lucky that I get to spend my days teaching other people to love the Craft, however teenage boys aren't often the most receptive of audiences. I'm sure they think I'm an old lady trapped in the body of a 30 year old!

This blog is really a way to empty my mind of all things craft related, showcase some of my bits and pieces and generally show the world what I have been up to....

Once I have worked out how to upload photos, I will! So watch this space....
