This is me.

A small time girl from Oz who has found herself thrown around by life in general, thrown away numerous opportunities to enter the business world, who is now scratching her head and wondering what to do with herself.

Here I am. My name is Ruth (you can call me Ruthie/Ruthy, I’m not the kind of kid who worries about nicknames. Call me Al for all I care.) I’m 28 and a new mother, living 3,000 kilometres away from any family (mine, or my husbands), and I need to get going and do something with myself.

I’ve decided to make furniture – that is my long term goal.

I don’t want to make beannies and kids stuff and pretty little things all the time. I see so many mothers doing that these days (and good on ’em!), but I want to dig my fingers into something grittier.

I am inspired by strength. I am inspired by music and sex, I am inspired by hobbies, photography, art, children, humanity and politics. I live outside the norm. I am described as eclectic and a little eccentric.

Today I am going to buy a sewing machine. I hope you like what I do with it.

    I know you’re going to enjoy that sewing machine! Mine sits there begging for attention (like right now), trying vainly to peek out from under its blankie and stare me into shame so I’ll go give it some lovin. Problem is, I gotta go to work! Poor baby will have to wait for me. 🙄

      I am having the same problem at the moment. I have all the greatest intentions but the baby just takes up most of the time…I hope your machine is getting some more lovin’ recently. I need to try some foreplay with my own.

        oh, it feels like it’s a queen lately, I’m sure. Just finished two really adorable little bibs, a couple of little ‘stuff’ pouches for a friend’s daughter, and a wallet, and getting ready to make a couple of purses and more bibs, and some other stuff to sell at the July 4th booth.
