Things to know about me for the other FQR-ers... I look like this.
People who know have previously described me as:
'a cross between Shere Khan and Thumper'
- because I might seem scary but really I'm lovely
'a bit dun-de-dun-de-de-dun-de-de-dun [the Imperial March]'
- I wear a lot of black
'incorrigible flirt and booze hound'
- so if you want to be lead astray I can likely have my arm twisted to the bar... or there's every chance that you can find me there.
My name is Sally in real life, but I'm nearlybutnotquite as a maker because I so want things that I make to be perfect... and need reassuring that it 'nearly' is... I often remind myself that even Mary Poppins was only 'practically perfect'. This means I'm terrible for not finishing things. But I so admire that in others.
Actually I'm pretty new to the world of sewing and blog reading even, let alone writing. Though I do remember a cross-stitching in the playground phase when I was 10 and the sampler still hangs in my mum's house. In just a couple of years it's built up to a frightening obsession - mostly EPP hexagons. Seriously they fill my flat. Basically this retreat is a meeting of Fabric Addicts (not very) Anonymous for me but I'm hoping to learn from some lovely people whose blogs and work I admire from afar and meet some like-minded strangers.
See you soon FQR-ers!
