It seems to me that an in­tro­duc­tion is re­quired. So without fur­ther ado, let me say hello and wel­come!

Canal Boat - - Crafty Business -

I am He­len, a fifty-some­thing mother of two, grand­mother of two, and wife of one. My hus­band Andy and I spend six months of the year liv­ing aboard our mo­tor­boat, Wand’ring Bark and tow­ing our belovéd Jam Butty. We run Wild Side Pre­serves and much of the time can be found mak­ing jam. Or mar­malade. Or chut­ney. When not chained to the stove, I en­joy mak­ing, re­pur­pos­ing, and re­cy­cling stuff, or as Andy would put it: sur­round­ing my­self with rub­bish. Find­ing cre­ative ways to fill my time, re­duce my con­tri­bu­tion to land­fill, and gen­er­ally try­ing to be en­vi­ron­men­tally sound is some­thing I thor­oughly en­joy. How­ever, I am by no means an ex­pert. I am just bum­bling along, try­ing my best and hope­fully not hurt­ing any­one in the process.
