About Me

I am Zoe.

I live in Perth, Australia, with some cats and a boy.

Crafting –
Currently, I like to sew and crochet.
In the past, I have liked cross stitch, jewellery making, knitting, and pottery.
In the future, I hope to learn macramé, silversmithing, and needle felting.

Cats –
I have three.
Maisie – 3 years old, Russian Blue, gorgeous, diabetic, queen of the house.
Daisy – 2 years old, NotARussian Blue, gorgeous, paranoid, obsessed with scrunched up paper.
Zelda – 1 year old, black, gorgeous, Daddy’s girl, obsessed with pestering Daisy.

Crazy –
Generalised anxiety disorder – aka worried about everything to a ridiculous level.
Previously agoraphobic. Maybe still a little bit.
Not on pills – just a lot of therapy.

I like giraffes. And I also like scarves.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and for the like. Giraffes and scarves, apart from the rhyme factor, are both fine things to be fond of. 🙂

    Hi Zoe,

    Noticed you have a 720 Singer like mine. I wanted to know if you have bought any parts? I took mine to get it fix and they suggested I throw it away. But I would like to try to get the parts before I do put it in the trash. It’s not picking up the bobbin thread – they say its broken and parts are hard to find. Any suggestions, would be great!

    Dude. I also love to cross stitch. But I’ve not had time over the last year or two. My best piece was a poster size madonna and child for a friend’s nursery (weird choice, I know… but the loved it). Took me about 18 months! But it’s SO relaxing!

    Love your blog Zoe! Followed the link from the SAFE forum. Would love to foster kitties but my old, senile tom cat would never allow it! So for now I just stalk your blog and imagine what a kitty cuddle would be like (myn is not a very affectionate creature – thank god for my puppy).

    ps. you should add the beautiful Zelda to your list of kitties 🙂

      Thanks! Fostering is great fun, but I only have one at the moment and she’s very timid so she might be here for a while! And thanks for reminding me to add Zelda to the list, I didn’t even think of that! 😀

    What a sweet about me page! Love that you love cats (I can’t live without them). Nice to ‘meet’ you!

    • Zoe / Sep 27 2010 10:55 pm

      Thank you! 🙂 Live would be mighty bland without my furry friends!

    very nice, love your intro, poetic! Did you draw the pictures on this page? My mother loves giraffes.

    • Zoe / Sep 24 2010 9:33 am

      Thank you, my sister drew the pictures, she’s a wonderful artist. You can find her here. She only just started blogging so there’s not much there yet!

      I totally agree about it being relaxing. I’ve cross stitched for 12 hours straight, I just go zen! I’ve never completed such a big piece though! Very impressive!

    Hi Zoe, nice place you have here. Your photos are very good. I also love flowers and gardens, there have been cats in my whole life, and there has been a boy -but a big one- for some time… I’m quite glad of finding your blog.

    • Zoe / Sep 24 2010 2:23 am

      Thank you, I’m happy to have you here!
