What made you join Cam City WI?

It's actually my 4 year anniversary of being in the WI in March 2018! Feels like longer!  I took just one person to introduce me and I was well away making new friends and taking the opportunities to join in and get involved.  I'm a very social lump - if I can avoid being in the house I will.  I'm also pretty committed to my WI, Cam City - but I do have a LOVE for the other WI's I dual with, Ladybirds and Blue Belles - I get a lot from time with all three groups in different ways.

Who inspires you and why?

Every single one of my friends, spending time with them and having their POV's and 'what they are about' affect my way of thinking... I learn a lot from my friends.

What's your philosophy in life? 

Keep on keeping on.  The world actually is not going to stop for you, me or anyone else, but you are always moving forward whatever the pace.

Secret skills / Guilty Pleasure / what's your poison? 

Secret skills: Workin' the patch! I can't actually get enough of patchwork and quilting (and craft in general)

Guilty Pleasure:  Fabric, Fabric, Fabric and Espresso Martini's (pretty much on hold until I use up some stash, finish some thangs and knock off a good few more bodily pounds!)

Poison: Cake (also on hold! I am sooooo fun right now! Carrots are immense!)

What would you do with/for a million?  

With a million, I'd give it to Margot to look after for me coz you know those spondoollies would be gone within half an hour of being in Liberty!

For a million, hmmm.... hmmmmmmmm? I have standards, but I would think about any serious offers!

Top three bucket list items? 

1.  Be offered a million pounds

2.  Be a healthy weight

3.  Religiously read all of Margot's awesome committee minutes! and convince her that the Welsh accent does include and 'errrr' at the end of every sentence-errr! ;)

What would be the perfect day for you? 

A day, with money to burn, in Liberty, and cocktails with friends! oooh sounds like de ja vu and a plan! whoop! x
