Hello, and welcome to my little space on the internet!
I’m Catherine, a 30 something finance professional by day, a wife to an amazing husband, a Mum to our little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and to top it all off, an avid and passionate embroiderer. Both myself and my hubby are Australians, living in Kent in the UK, and absolutely loving it!
