I'm Midge. Well, Melissa when I'm in trouble. I'm a 38 year old Queensland born, Melbourne living Mum to four children and one husband. I work as a disability carer, as I have done for 17 years. I also work as a Mum, as I have for 14.5 years. I work at my marriage.....cos I didn't with my first one. It's working wonderfully second time round.
I also sew. I learnt to sew around 6/7 years of age. With my Mum. I did so right up until the end of my schooling, where I managed to pull a fabulous VCE score due to my A+'s in textiles! Lost interest, right up until about three years ago, when I dusted off my sewing machines and jumped in. Turns out I CAN actually sew. Turns out I enjoy it! So I've turned my hobby in to a very small business, and I am loving creating for others.
A strange turn of events happened in 2012, when I discovered, after many years of saying I would NEVER quilt, because it's too fiddly - that I DO in fact quilt! And I have very quickly become addicted, bordering on obsessed.
I also babble. Can you tell? This blog is my place. Somewhere I can come and write about whatever I want. Without judgement. Well, judgement that I care about......
Thank you for joining me! xxx
