After a long spell living in Yorkshire, Gillian and her family have relocated to the south coast of Hampshire, where she grew up. She is constantly making a variety of lovely things, but in particular bits and pieces which add colour and individuality to her home. Her passions (beside her family) include making and baking, growing and sewing, reading, photography and the English coast.
A few questions about nice things...
Who do you most admire?
Those busy and often unacknowledged women who juggle many things, work hard in their chosen jobs, give up their free time, love their families and friends, contribute to their local community, and just generally get things done while having a laugh at the same time.
What are your favourite possessions?
My KitchenAid Mixer. Pictures drawn and stories written by my children which I keep in my “sentimental box”, along with tiny shoes and lots of photos. An award I won at work in my job, pre-kids. A ring I inherited from my Grandmother. The things I have made in our home: blankets, cushions, artwork, embroideries. My phone.
