Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand
My name is Carol and I live in Central Auckland in New Zealand. I am in my mid-forties and have been crafting since I was a very small girl. I first learnt to hand sew when I was four years old and then moved on to using my Mother's sewing machine when I was six or seven. By the time I was a teenager I had learnt to sew reasonably well. As well I paint, collage, quilt, make paper and sculpt when I have the opportunity. I live with my partner in a Central City Apartment and we have a small dog, his name is Angus. When I am not working or making things I swim in the open water. I am a real water baby and swim up to five times a week. I also lift weights and attend a spin class. My down time is spent cooking and reading sewing blogs. I love to buy fabric and have much more than I will ever openly admit to. I have lots of stashes hidden away for that special project. Other than that I have a real interest in health and alternative medicine and have trained with a Paul Chek trainer for 5 years. I balance this with a love for a good cocktail or two on a Thursday night.
