Hi, my name is Sara and I'm a thirtysomething mother of two, living in Dorset with a cat called Violet, three hens and upwards of ten bantams! I love them all, despite the chaos they bring to the house & garden. Luckily my significant other, a Sicilian chef, restores calm on a regular basis. When I'm not sewing, knitting or crocheting I'm running our cookery school & artisan food range - oh, and browsing the local auction rooms! As long as I take a moment to smell the flowers, life in the little cottage in the woods is pretty rosy!
