My husband of 42 years died in 2006. I have three children, two daughters and a son and four grand children, one girl and three boys.
I trained as a teacher of Home Economics in the 1960s but have been interested in crafts since I was six.
I learned how to crochet and do embroidery because I wanted to make a matinee jacket for my new baby brother.
I taught myself to tat when I left school, over 40 years ago and I'm still learning.
