This time next week, if all goes according to plan, I shall be in London attending the Fat Quarterly Retreat. I can hardly wait! Being disorganised, I only actually booked a couple of weeks ago which is probably a good thing, as I think I would have exploded if I’d tried to contain the excitement for months!
So, who am I? I’m Ana and I’m 26. I look like this:
That was me on Thursday night, cuddling a knitted dinosaur at the stitching club I go to. And yes, I do usually look slightly unhinged 😉 You’ll also recognise me for my habit of babbling too much and too loudly in an attempt to cover the fact I’m actually rather shy.
I live in the West Midlands with my boyfriend and our menagerie; 3 degus, 2 dwarf russian hamsters, 2 cats and a 1 year old lunatic of a border collie called Monty. I have a degree in geology, hence the love of dinosaurs although I’ve never used it for anything important. Until this year, I’d been unable to work for several years due to being more than a little bit mad. I am now on the slow and sometimes painful road to recovery and as part of this am trying to set up my own crafting business.
That’s my flower and is how I can be recognised throughout the internet. I’ve just set up selling on Etsy and can be found at www.etsy.com/shop/AnaCrafts.
I am a complete crafting addict; I quilt, make jewellery, make cards, cross stitch and I’ve just learnt to crochet. I am almost entirely self taught with the help of books and online tutorials. This means my technique can be a little strange but I usually get there in the end.
Now all I need to do if finish my swap items, sort out fabric for the classes and pack. I can’t wait to meet you all!
