Hello, I’m Annie.
Mum to a giddy kipper of a toddler, a pushover when it comes to Roxy the Yorkshire Terror & wife to a Wookie called Ben.
By day I conjure up new activities to keep the Little Man entertained and by night you can find me stitching up a storm at my home in Cheshire, working by the light of my embroidery & sewing machines creating threads stitched with an alternative twist from Cheshire cat cushions to Police Box gadget cases.
I’ll openly own up to being a total science fiction & cult TV geek with a particular fondness for Doctor Who, all of the Star Trek series & the glorious telly watching that is the Whedon-verse. Murder & crime mysteries also float my boat both on the small screen & in paperback so you’ll often find me munching my breakfast or supper whilst watching the Alibi channel or having my face firmly planted amidst the pages of an Agatha Christie novel.
I love to turn my hand to anything including crafts, gardening & photography. As the Wookie often notes, I’m a dab hand at turning nothing into something…I’m positive hubby is refering to my crafty nature there!
My influences are steampunk (I blame working with steam engines at my former museum job for that), rock music (punk rock is where I began though I am partial to the classics), tattoos (I have at least 5 planned), kawaii (it’s just soooo bloomin’ cute) and geekery (I’m a Whovian & a Trekkie, ’nuff said).
I’m at my happiest when on an imagination adventure with my little lad (he loves boxes as much as meeeee!) or turning that well kept, saving for a certain project piece of fabric into a rockin’ item for myself, my family or the wonderful folk out there who are as passionate for an alternative lifestyle as I am.
