About me

I’m interested in how places have changed and how people used to live. In adding to my family tree I like to see where people lived, but also what jobs they did. Otherwise a tree is just bare branches.   I use maps, talking to people and old pictures to see how places have changed. We are lucky to have the internet as it has made finding out so much quicker. But we need context to make sense of facts.   People who know me have seen that I like to have old thing around me. Things like old books, old photos, old kitchenware. In fact you could say that I live in the past!   But in the modern world I like making crafts such as sewing bags and hats. I use a needle felting (embellishing) machine to decorate fabric. Recently I’ve started making art canvases and have discovered gel printing plates.
