"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

Dia Dhuit

Please join me in welcoming mum of all trades.  Mum of all trades is based in Donegal, in Ireland.
MoaT's blog details how she "decorates on a budget, crafts,thrifty tips, diy, and anything else that she might be up to".  I like, and am very grateful for, her tutorial on re-covering a lamp shade - I have such a DIY project ahead of me once we are on the farm :)

Thank you, MoaT, for hitting the follow button.  I reply to all comments (even those placed on old postings), but given the size of this wonderful planet, and the different time zones, it may not be today by your time, but will certainly be by tomorrow.  And, once we are on the farm, and given our slow internet connection, it may take a little longer...LOL

(It's amazing the things that come instantly back to you after years and years of not using them, isn't it?)
