This is my first blog entry and I’m excited to say the least.

Mr Stitches and I are currently in a mad rush to complete modernisation of our house before the end of September and so initially I suspect my posts will be very much concerned with the ongoing tribulations of bringing our neglected house up to scratch, and transforming it into a family home.

But once that’s completed, the fun begins…….and I can’t wait. Sewing, knitting and embroidery, plus whatever other crafts catch my magpie eye from time to time. Plus general musings on life in a Lancashire town (which frankly isn’t that exciting, but I’m exploring possibilities to make it more so).

So welcome. Whether you’re friends and family looking to see just how things are progressing here, or a visitor to my blog – it’s nice to “meet” you.
