SAMSUNG CSCHi! I am semi-retired teacher living with my husband Peter in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. After my granddaughter Juniper was born 3 years ago I was drawn to my creative side and began sewing, knitting, crocheting and embroidering again after a long break! I am loving getting back into making things espeacially fabric shopping and to sew clothes for Juni. Living in Hong Kong and Thailand for 23 years enabled me to explore China town and Jatuchuck market for craft materials.  More recently I have being making reusable calico bags to use when shopping for produce and cushions sewn with African cotton fabric.
