Last month, one of my blog readers got hold of me to tell me she had something interesting for me (more on that later). Intruiged, I went to meet Beryl, and found one busy lady, with countless embroidery projects on the go , including these little pincushions…
…and also beautiful embroidered pictures, like the one below that I liked very much. She also raises money for charities by reconditioning cards, and when she’s not reading her favourite blogs (like Skinny laMinx!) she uses her computer to put together her Village’s monthly newsletters.
But Beryl’s not all about pursuits of the ladylike variety. She’s a passionate recycler and re-user, and along with her helpers Christina and Gale, they run “The Pondokki Worm Farm” from her garage, where they grow and sell earthworms. I’ve been planning a worm farm for a while, and I’m glad to now have a dealer of my own!
