“I have been crafting for so many years that I cannot remember when I first started, having been in hospital on and off for more years than I care to remember with agoraphobia, panics attacks and anxiety attacks to name just a few illnesses!!!

Crafting has always been a life line to some sort of normality. I love all crafts and have tried most, cross stitch, glass painting, silk painting, cake decoration, weaving and anything else I have been given a chance to try.

I have been making cards for the charity Operation Blue Witch Squadron. They sent the cards to RAF stations in all kinds of camps in war zones abroad. Sadly I have just heard that the charity has had to close. So now I will need another one to replace them.

Now with better medication I can do more but now am carer to my 89 year old mum, so I do a lot of crafting to keep me sane just like many other crafters.”
