About me...

My name is Jan and I am head gardener here at thread garden. I live on an island, Tasmania, in Australia with my fabulous husband and three children (14,12 and 3).

The blog name was an easy choice as I adore threads and have a passion for gardening. I also love recording my memories in paper form.

Initially I started my blog in March 2009 as a quilting and gardening blog. But as you can see 

I have rediscovered...c r o s s  s t i t c h  . 

Those little x's are little kisses on my fabric.

Sure I still love quilts, sewing and gardening but I blog about cross stitch a lot!

I was born with a needle in my hand. I started with needlepoint when I was 5 years. I stitched my first counted cross stitch at 12. I haven't stopped crafting since.

 I love craft so much I often dream about it. 

I hope you enjoy reading about my crafting journey with bits and bobs of my life and other passions thrown in...Jan x
