About Me

Hello there, my name is Sharon and I live in Westcliff on Sea with my two daughters, Rosie Matilda and Rumer Valentine and, when he's home from uni, my son Sydney. I opened my shop Roses & Rue in July 2009 and this has been a long held dream realised. I have recently given up teaching so that I can focus on building the business. As well as being fanatical about knitting, I love to crochet, sew and generally have a go at all things crafty. Hopefully you will take a little time out now and then to visit the blog and find out whats been going on in my busy world.

Too many balls in the air

Sometimes I wonder why I can't seem to do one job at a time, get it finished and then move on to the next. Is it the way my brain is wired? Or is it the old chestnut of 'gender socialisation'? Are we conditioned to multi-task, as women? Does it hamper our progress, or have a negative impact on our identity?...........Woah, for a minute there I thought I was back in the classroom, teaching A level sociology!
Whatever... once a multi tasker, always a multi tasker! And there will always be at least half a dozen projects that need finishing...........

Planning for the launch of the new webshop

Where's my hair?
A cushion without stuffing!

Flowers for a lampshade

Squares that need joining

At least the children get their projects finished!

I think it must be time you took up another hobby... tatting, willow weaving, hedge laying, jam making or even cross stitch!

I don't mind having lots of sf stuff on the go, it's just where to store it all that I find the issue!

A new webshop - how exciting! Hope the shop is still doing well and I love your crochet bits.

Glad you like the crocheted bits. I go through phases; knitting, crochet and sewing. I need to get the sewing machine back out and find some inspiration as I feel a bit crocheted out!
