Here I am!

Hi to all, I've made a big decision, I will blog! At least, I will try to.

Who am I ? My name is Veronique, in short Vero. I live in the South of France. I'm almost 50 and have raised two daughters who can now do without me.

While they have been studying, I've discovered textile art, and many friends in the web with the same interest. Since then I've been experimenting and learning a lot.

On the way, I let my garden live on its own. After all, it was mainly bushes and perennials, so no big maintenance required. In the South of France, summers are hot and dry, and gardens suffer a lot. This was the other reason that I'd lost my motivation. But last June, I went to Sweden, and fell in love with the gardens over there. And the motivation was there again.

So, as you may have guessed, this blog will be mainly about textile art and my attempts at having a nice garden next year.

You will also certainly read of cats, birds and books, that are my other main interests.

I hope you will enjoy it and that you will visit often.

Welcome, welcome! And I get to make the first comment. I'm so glad you've started a blog, because now I'll get to see more of your work, and, importantly, work in progress, such as your Lutradur and lace project.

Your English is perfect.
