About me

My name is Linda  and I live in a beautiful part of Surrey, close to all the bustle of The Big City, but tucked away in a quiet corner. I live in an 18th century cottage, with my husband and our lovely pussycat, Poppy.  We are lucky to have a large garden, backing on to woodland.  I grow vegetables, keep chickens and make bramble jelly from the blackberries that threaten to take over, around the edges of the garden.

For many years, I worked in an office job, but it was never really what I wanted to do. I relieved the boredom by running a knitwear business in the evenings, designing and making children’s jumpers and selling them at craft fairs. 

Then I decided to follow my dreams and worked part-time while retraining to be a garden designer.  I currently run my own business, www.greengardendesign.co.uk, and I’m proud of what I’ve achieved.  It’s scary not having a guaranteed pay packet at the end of the month but days outside in the sun and the rain make up for it.

I knit wherever and whenever I can around all of that, and my head is stuffed full of ideas of what to do next – never enough hours!

      Hi Claire, that’s very kind of you thank you very much. I enjoyed reading your 7 random facts – I shall think of you now as the Sheep Dog Lady! I will have to start putting together my ‘acceptance speech’! Thanks again,
      Linda x

      • You’re very welcome! No obligation to accept though if you don’t want to but just seems like a nice way to share & meet new people on the internet x I quite like the reference to ‘the sheepdog lady’! I’ve put a little link to your Knit Your Own Bunny kit on my Easter blog post : it’s so sweet!
