Today I am taking part in Grow Your Blog organised by Vicki over at 2 Bags Full. The idea is to pop over and take a peek at lots of blogs, then follow those that take your fancy. At the same time people are popping in to see you. It's like a sort of street party for bloggy types. So if you have come via 2 bags Full, welcome to Stitches and Seeds, and if you have come for any other reason, welcome also. My name is Eleanor. Now, can I get you a glass of something? Cuppa? Cake? Excellent.
Now I am supposed to tell you all about why I blog and what it is all about. Hard question really. I started almost two years ago, really just to prove to myself I could. I didn't even broadcast the existence of my little blog to anyone to start with, I just wanted to see if it suited me. I think it does and so I like to ramble about my crafty makes, my much loved garden, baking, days out and all manner of fun.
Then about 15 months ago we embarked on a little adventure. J and I and the three Smalls left our happy house and our lovely garden to travel half way round the world, and came to live here on the little island of St Helena for two years.
My little blog expanded to include stories of our travels and our exploits in our new home. I have met amazing crafty types and have expanded my horizons in every direction since we have been here. My non-crafty friends and family back home have even started popping by sometimes.
So scroll back through a few posts and you can explore life 1000 miles from anywhere and have a peek at one of my pet projects. If you like what you see, follow along with the button in the left hand side bar and I look forward to you popping by again soon.
