I learned to sew at my grandmother's knee. Using her turn handle sewing machine, she would give me the offcuts of whatever she was making. She would sit one end of the table and I would sit at the other with the scraps, making clothes for my teddy bears. My grandmother would always use a pattern, but I've always been able to create stuff just from patterns in my head. I could take a pile of mess and turn it into something beautiful.
It's about creating what's good, and what works. Anyone can learn a system, but doing the research and combining it with what works best for that individual person requires combining skills with personality.
I originally trained as a vet nurse, so animals have always been a large part of my life. It's the companionship and the company: you're never alone, and they're so undemanding. They give you so much compared to what you give them. Training Oscar was truly enjoyable - forming that bond which remains over the years. This passion for training is part of what I do at LimeCloud, and why I enjoy what I do so much.
