Hello there & welcome.
Welcome to my place, a room upstairs and with a view. The view may be my backyard and suburbia but it is my room. It is where I do all my stuff.
Sew | Fluff around | Draw | Embroider | Code | Listen to Music | Blog | Day Dream | Knit | Read | Hide
And it is all mine. No one else’s . Ok so there maybe only hubbie and me in the house along with 2 cats; the cats are allowed in. In this room are all my prized possessions; my sewing machines (4 plus my overlocker), all my craft books, my fabric stash, my yarn stash and my computer et al. Oh and there is a guitar that hasn’t been played in years.
I call this room the tree house as it sits right in the middle of the upstairs and apart from the next door neighbours, all I can see are trees. What I can hear though is a different matter. I have a freeway right next door, but that is ok. We have lived here for over 10 years, and I am used to it. Rather this than airplanes flying overhead. I also see a lot of sky.
So why The Redhaired Squirrel? For starters I have red hair. Long red hair and when I wear it up, it looks like a big thick tail. Squirrel? My son calls me this. I can be in a middle of sentence and bam I am off somewhere else. If you have never watched the movie “Up,” I suggest you do.
This blog? I have a little blog for my sewing, knitting and other crafts, but I don’t really tell the stories behind the makes. Well I do from a makers point of view, but not so much the journey of the struggles and triumphs. Maybe I should. I like blogging as well so I thought I would put the two together; the stories and the journeys. A different perspective. Also I have other hobbies that don’t necessarily fit with my other blog. Such as my photography and all the other things I want to try such as making an app and therefore teaching myself Java and how to build an app. I also want to learn how to use my Wacom tablet. And calligraphy. I looove fonts..
Succulents are a new discovery to me so I want to explore these. Oh the things I want to do.
All the things.
I also read, must have music on all.the.time. Enjoy a good movie and am trying to lose weight and get fit – that one is another story for another time. But there is plenty for us to chat about.
So thanks for dropping by and don’t be a stranger.
