Hello, and welcome to old friends and new readers..

Hello, and welcome to old friends and new readers..

In December 2007, in a fit of madness, I started a blog. I called it ‘Cheshire Cheese’, for no very good reason, except that I was born in Cheshire and I like cheese. (I also like cats, so I could just as well have called it Cheshire Cat, I suppose.)

At that time I was taking a City and Guilds embroidery course, and I had a new granddaughter, and that is what my first few posts were about. The rest of them have been pretty much the same. The granddaughter now has a little brother, and City and Guilds became a Foundation Degree in Stitched Textiles, and then a degree in Fine Art, but I’m still rabbiting on about family and textiles. Expect more of the same over here.

So why am I here? Increasing familiarity with WordPress, which hosts what passes for my website, and increasing frustration with Blogger, led to the decision to move. I have left my ramblings from the last nine years up over on the old blog, but I will not be posting any more over there.
