The MakeBakeSisters are:


The big sister of the MakeBake trio. I love to bake, particularly bread. I love books, especially books about baking and bread (oh and food history, too). Beyond those constants of flour, yeast and the oven, I run, swim and cycle and am currently training for my first half-Ironman triathlon. In the gaps between all of that and working, sleeping and eating, I try to squeeze in some knitting, sewing, photography and balcony gardening here and there.


Middle sister! I love to try new recipes but don’t do it often because it’s too depressing when my notoriously limited-diet family refuse to eat stuff I make. I spent several years scrapbooking, then discovered digital scrapping. So now I do only a little traditional scrapping, because I digitally scrap photos long before I get around to printing them for traditional scrapping. I enjoy papercrafting and cardmaking, and these days do more sewing on paper than on fabric. Still, I drive a sewing machine with confidence and I crochet with a skill that thoroughly impresses anyone who knows absolutely nothing about crochet. Oh, and I write (largely unpublished) fiction – or at least, I did when I had time and energy for it, and hope to one day again. And I read Tarot cards (no interaction with evil forces involved).


I’m the youngest! Yes, in fact, the ‘baby’ of the family, but only Mum is allowed to say so. I dabble in various types of crafting, I love baking, and I have been known to stay up to the wee hours slaving over a hot sewing machine. I’m a keen op-shopper, and I especially enjoy trying new and different ways to recycle the bargains I find thereof. I also have a karate habit which I intend to continue until I am the only competitor in the over-70’s division at the world championships.

      Welcome! I think you can safely anticipate both – Between the three of us there is a lot of cakemaking and I love breadmaking….
