1. Tell us three things about yourself.
- I have my own beauty room.
- My family call me Foal.
- I love to sing.
Who taught you your first craft?
My Mum taught me to knit when I was about seven years old. I remember doing a blue dress and hat for my doll. I sewed it together and put straps on it. I've still got and use the sewing box that I was given when I was about nine.
What finish are you most proud of?
That would have to be the Birthday cake I knitted for one of the challenges here at the Stitch N Bitch. Mum had to explain the pattern to me and I was still working on it the night before the competition!
What was your biggest crafting disaster?
I attempted to do a blanket in random colours. I hated those colours! They just didn't work for me. I was so miserable working on it. In fact the yarn and part done blanket are still sitting in a bag somewhere.
What other crafts do you do?
Sewing, crochet, knitting and paper cutting.
Favouite colours - Traditional pastels.
Favourite designs - Baby things in general.
Favourite shop - Hobbycraft and the wee local wool shop near my work.
Favourite Craft Book- The Complete Crochet Step By Step Guide.
What would you like to achieve in the future?
I would like to make something for ME. Probably something like Lisa's shawlette box.
What do you like to listen to or watch while you are crafting?
I like to watch cookery programmes or listen to music. Or, if I'm feeling really clever, then I will read a good book on my Kindle and crochet at the same rime!
Don't give up!
What are you working on at the moment?
A little hooded poncho for my niece.
