hi my name is Andrea, I enjoy many crafts including teddy bear making, quilting, knitting oh just say I love all crafts. :smile: I am a single mum of 3, 2 girls aged 18 and 16 and a boy who is 2. I love animals and doing the gardening I am trying to do up my home and garden in a cottage style. Oh yes I am from Tasmania a little state at the bottom of Australia.

Well that is all from me now

Hi Andrea, Welcome - there are a couple of Aussies here - probably more than I know about because a lot of members seem to lurk without posting - no doubt living vicariously through our oh-so-exciting lives. I'm from south east of Melbourne and Soph - who will no doubt also post a welcome is from Ballarat - north east of Melbourne. This is a great place to be a part of - everybody is very friendly and helpful. Hope to hear more from you.

Hi Andrea, and welcome.
I also enjoy gardening, although right now I garden by neglect. Right now all my energies are going into my budding sewing habit.
