Blogging to control yarn and fabric urges

About Me November 8, 2008

Thank you for stopping by.

I am an Urban Planner (a town planner with a degree in urban design) who is currently working a couple of days a week and looking after my beautiful little boy Gryff.  Until recently, any time I have spare I have spent  knitting and crocheting, planning to knit and crochet, finding yarns to knit and crochet.  Now I do a bit of sewing as well.  I have done other things in my life but at present, that is about it.

My husband and I live in sunny South East Queensland having met when we were both working in London.  He is from the north of England and a mad Middlesbrough supporter.  I spent 10 years in the UK but don’t really miss it much.  Life has changed a lot since then and I love where we are now.

Husband and Baby

My current little dream is to finish the renovations to our house so that I have a small part of our office which I will convert to my crafting area.

    Hi Susie,

    I have been feverishly sewing my Around The Block contributions and have managed to fully catch up (in the nick of time) !! LOL
    Could I please request a fabric pack to contribute to your gorgeous April quilt for Gryff?

    If you are happy with this, please mail to :

    Kindest regards,

      MJ – happy to send some more fabric. Good on you for catching up.
      BTW – I grew up in Mont Albert – Agnes Street in fact. I went to the Surrey Hills State School until Grade 5. Good memories of that.

      All the best

    Thank you so much, Susie! Funny about you and Mont Albert! I used to live in Brisbane….in Laurel Avenue, Chelmer, although I was born and bred in Melbourne. Are you anywhere near there?
