My name is Alexandra and I am a 30 something year old Mum of two girls.  I absolutely adore anything Vintage and I am also a keen Crocheter and Sewer.  I first had the idea of starting a little blog when I was in hospital being treated for Anorexia, Depression and Addiction although never had the self esteem to do it, but here I am!  Its been a long journey and I still have a little way to go but I’m gonna get there!!

In 2015, myself and two friends attended a Crochet class at a local yarn shop and since that fateful day I have been totally hooked (see what I did there!) on Crochet.  I founded a small group on Facebook soon after our little crochet taster session called Crochet Beginners Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/crochetbeginnersgroup).  In the very beginning, there was only 5 of us as members but it grew extremely quickly and 18 months on, we have over 90k members from around the world!!

I am currently studying to become a Mental Health Nurse at UWE in Bristol, UK.  After my spell in hospital I decided that I wanted to give something back to the amazing staff and patients that saved my life.  I also work shifts at a Psychiatric Hospital near to me and I absolutely ADORE my job.  Yes it can be very hard and upsetting at times but seeing someone recover and knowing that you have been there along the way to encourage and support them is priceless and humbling.  I am a member of the WI and before you ask, no, we don’t make Jam or sing Jerusalem but we do have lots of Tea and Cake!


I hate Wasps (what is the point of them?), Spiders (yuck) and Lemon Curd (Devils food).

I have a rescue Cat called Charlie who is very naughty but very cute.


And two beautiful Red Head teen girls.


Anyway, I am waffling!  Enjoy the read!
