Happily married to a long suffering husband. 3 children and 5 lovely little grandchildren. I am a long term M.E sufferer and have recently been diagnosed with fybromyalgia and osteoarthritis in my hands. I took up designing about 7 years ago as a therapy after a mental breakdown. It has really opened up a whole new world to me. I love that other people enjoy knitting the items I design and I have met some lovely people through designing and selling my patterns.
