First things first, I'm Jo, and I'm mum to 2 rambunctious boys. George, who's 3 and currently helping himself to peanut butter out of the jar (it's OK, he's using a spoon); and Sam, who's chilling out next to me on the sofa.
I got made redundant from my first ever 'permanent' job just before I returned to work following my maternity leave, so looked for things to fill my time (because you get loads of that spare with children around of course). I'd already been knitting a fair amount and then my mum and dad bought me a sewing machine for Christmas. My mum is/was a dressmaker and teacher of Textiles so I'm hoping some of her creativeness has rubbed off on me!
