About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

One Stitch at a Time ~ Winter

I am very late with this fortnights winter blog piece for http://onestitchatatimechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/

I have had laptop issues and I am just about getting over it and reinstalling absolutely everything on it again.  Lesson learnt NEVER plug anything unless 300% certain it's safe in or it could totally kill the laptop!

This is my piece, and sorry again it's late.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
