I'm an English girl, married to a Kiwi guy and we have two daughters - one is a kiwi and one is a brit. We are currently living in the Manawatu.
I truly believe that there are enough things in the world already so I make do and mend at every opportunity. Although the following words are readily bandied around a lot these days - reduce, re-use, recycle, re-purpose, upcycle, refashion - I think they are very important in today's society and I actively try to incorporate them in my everyday life.
All the things I make are from recycled, reclaimed, thrifted material and from natural materials such as cotton and linen. I also use vintage fabrics when I find them. Due to this each item is an original handmade item.
Thank you so much for looking. xx
