Needlework, Embroidery and Knitting

I inherited my love of creativity from my maternal Grandmother she was a very clever lady of which I find hard to match. As well as being a well known breeder of Yorkshire Terriers and a Crufts judge at 80 years old she was a great artist. She opened the first painted lampshade factory and supplied many of the large department stores in around 1928. She painted in oils and I remember when I was quite young we would drive her out to a picturesque cottage or garden and she would paint. The smell of turps and linseed oil always takes me back. I grew up wearing sweaters knitted by her usually yellow polo necks! Her mother (my Great Grandmother) was a very fine needlewoman and I still have her needlework box.

I enjoy knitting, the more colours and complicated the better, crochet and am wearing one of my creations as I write. I have embroidered many things including some very fine napkins. Below are some pictures of my achievements. If you would like anything knitted, crocheted or embroidered please let me know.
