Hello everyone and thank you for letting me join.

I live in the Ribble Valley in Lancashire and love many creative pursuits, including dressmaking, making household furnishings, machine embroidery, gardening, (particularly growing veg and salad), knitting and crochet.  I’m teaching myself quilting but I’m still quite a beginner at that!

I have a blog under my user name at blogspot, and love sharing my creative life there too.  As I now know I’m allowed to post my blog link you can find me here:

https://creativemummybear.blogspot.com

I am very much looking forward to getting to know everyone, and learning from you as well as (hopefully!) helping someone else maybe!

Oh, thank you!  I wasn’t sure if I was allowed to.  I’ll do that now!   :D

Hello , welcome to TSP. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. I mainly inhabit the Dark side with fellow quilters, but having read your blog, I’ve already saved your instructions for long socks as I do a bit of knitting too.  I have only knitted short socks , which I do wish were longer on cold days like today!

Oh, I’m so happy you read my blog!  I love knee high socks under trousers as they keep my legs so nice and warm!  Hope you find my adaptation of Winwick Mum’s wonderful pattern helpful in making some for yourself.   <3

Hi and Welcome,

Settle in and ask questions and pass comment, we're all busy helping each other (avoid actually sewing :)  )
