like to meet us?

i guess you may like to meet us, the 'girls' from broderie and the kingston girls, we are the faces behind this blog 'give these girls ago'.
i can hear screams coming from tasmania, as my cousins shout why did you use that photo, but i have been searching and this is what we look like really, there has been no cosmetic fixing! we are practical girls after all, doing things and happy with our life.

this is me, lizzie, and i am interested in all needlecrafts, papercrafts, love colour and fabric and love friends and family, and also love my own company, am content with my life.
this is barbara, loves her home and enjoys papercrafts, patchwork, machine sewing and cooking, a new dog called 'millie' keeps her very fit! and is sister to paula and cousin of lizzie, and also loves her family and friends.

hard hats still being worn

progress is being made and the site is starting to look more as though something new is happening! paula is out today with the ute, helping to move concrete and rubble from a real building site! i have been busy doing alot of behind the scenes admin work and barbara is probably lying around ! not likely! there is a joke in the family that i am 'rewind', paula is 'play' and barbara is 'fast forward', sums up our personalities but we all get on really well.
