Hi there from DownUnder!

I've just taken courage in both hands and decided to join this group! Sounds like a lot of fun! I'm a wife and a mum of 2 smallish kids (my eldest just started school!) This year I've decided to start studying again... Master of Counselling and Graduate Diploma of Divinity. Yes, I know I'm crazy! I'm usually flat out doing lots of different crafts but for some reason I've got none out this year so far!!!! Since I need the occasional excuse to get my head out of the books I thought I'd join this group! By day I'm a mum, by night a student!!!! My favourite colour is purple (hence my picket fence and windows are this!) but my house is very bright... red kitchen, purple lounge and bedroom, daughter's room is lime and hot pink, son's room is lime and bright blue, family room is mango... getting some impressions now?!?! I love stitching bright, funky things but occasionally stitch something really pretty (whoever stitched "Cottage Garden" I saw in the blog was right on the money - beautiful!) or boyish! I found this blog via MyMark Designs so that may tell you something!!! I really am very out of fashion at the moment because at least here in Oz neutrals and browns are all the go!!! I think brown belongs in the ground, under the grass!!! I'm really looking forward to getting to know some of you and hopefully I will survive the first round I join (even if I have to stay up all night!!!!!) LoL, Mairi

Hey Mairi! Welcome. I'm looking forward to stitching for you. I spent part of yesterday flipping through patterns. Hopefully I'll find a perfect one!
