I have called England (United Kingdom) home for over ten years. Before moving to London, I spent most of my time in Sweden, where I was born and went to university. I have also worked shorter periods (less than one year in each) in Hong Kong, Poland, Latvia, the United States (Texas) and Brazil.
Sewing, quilting and all other types of crafting are for my own sanity. It helps me wind down, it provides distraction from a demanding job and, this is actually important to me, it feels less wasteful to create things than "just watch TV". Some of the things I make, are for my family and to make our lives better. I can only say a HUGE THANK YOU to my Mamma, who taught me to sew as a young child.
I love to test new things. I am a "trial and error" person. If I see something I like online or in a shop, I usually have a go at creating it. For quilting, I am not very good at following patterns as I enjoy making it up as I go along. Also, I can never muster enough energy to make the same block over and over again...
