Early retirement has enabled me to enjoy more time for many things, in particular having more time for family and friends and making things. For at least 30 years I really haven’t had the time to sew and knit and do crafts, but now I do, so I’m making the most of it.
A few sewing workshops at Love, Heart, Home with the lovely Marion Preston have helped with my confidence, my skills and given me lots of ideas. And it’s great to do these things socially with knit and natter or stitch and bitch, sharing common interests and friendship.
Handmade by GJ is me sharing the outcomes of my endeavours in the hope that it inspires others to take up a craft. If I can do it, anyone can.
