About me

Location Glossop, United Kingdom
Introduction I'm primarily a hoarder, a magpie with a huge stash of yarn, knitting patterns, sewing patterns, fabric, clothes, vintage tea cups, recipes, films, books - you name it.

I love to dance too - I'm a moderately good modern jive dancer, and I'm learning to Lindy Hop.
Interests Knitting, unravelling, eating, taking pictures, walking, charity shopping, cooking, baking, books, films, and interesting and unusual people.
Favorite Movies Gone with the Wind, High Fidelity, The Slipper and the Rose, Strictly Ballroom
Favorite Music I'm very picky but not genre-specific. Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson and The Mamas and the Papas all frequently crop up on my playlist. Swing is awesome, pretty much anything motown will do, and I have a deep abiding and unabashed love of disco. And Meatloaf.
Favorite Books Really big fat works of literature like Middlemarch and Vanity Fair.
