All the ideas and knowledge from my mother in the garden, to get the best effect and not kill all my plants.
Do you craft?
I do lots of different crafts, I’m not especially great at any! I like sewing, knitting, baking and have just started lace making. My to-do in the next year is to try Encaustic Art (hot wax painting), it looks easy and hopefully I can be more artistic than I really am!
