My name is Anita and I am a stay at home mum of 2 gorgeous children. I am British but have been living in The Netherlands for over a year, and have been an expat for a number of years living in Singapore and Dubai. How I miss the warmth on my back, especially in the depths of a dutch winter!
I have always liked to bake, my parents like to remind me regularly of how messy the kitchen was after I had been in there as a teenager, and there really is no change. The vacuum cleaner has to come out every time. Cakes and desserts are my passion, although I can get passionate about savoury dishes sometimes – but they have to be really good.
In early 2008, my husband bought me a sewing machine and I hide in the sewing room to avoid all other household chores! My sewing skills have really taken off and I have been making clothes for my children and started quilting projects amongst other things. I am very lucky that I have a room which I call a sewing room, basically it is a box rom with an ikea table and a large wardrobe which holds the ever expanding fabric stash and sewing notions.
Finally, in late Autumn 2008, I taught my self to crochet and have hooked a hexagon afghan, and a ripple afghan and now I am about to start on a granny extravaganza (Aug ’09)
Starting a blog for me began as a way to keep track of all the things I was making, a sort of diary, however it has developed into something more than that. I have made some lovely virtual friends in Blogland and have been so inspired by what other people are up to. I love being part of this virtual community and hope to make many more friends who are as passionate about the things I love, as I am.
Thanks for spending time reading about me and please have a browse around the blog. Drop me an email if you like anytime I would love to hear from you.
