I recently gave up trying to teach myself to sew and went on a day course instead which was great and gave me the confidence I needed. I'm very much a beginner and am making simple cushions, bags, duvet covers etc at the moment but I would like to quilt and make clothes. I can also knit and crochet (after a fashion!) and enjoy cross-stitch.
I'm married with 2 small children (the willing recipients of most of my efforts so far) and also like walking, cooking and gardening.
