Hi my name is Irram, Cardiff born and bred, Welsh learner, member of YesCymru, supporter of independence/annibyniaeth. I'm Muslim and Asian and spent a lifetime of receiving racial abuse, so I'm now a founding member of my employer's BAME Network. Hobbies include sewing, cross stitching, making jewellery, theatre, cinema, concerts, shopping, vintage/antiques, National Trust and history. My claim to fame is I went on Bargain Hunt and won! 😃

Sorry not posting much on here currently, still using Twitter Twatter, but I wanted to share my latest make. I started the floral cross stitch with the intention of turning it into a purse or makeup bag. A friend suggested I make it into a pocket for a bag instead which I did. Finished late last night and I love it. Also had a near matching cotton fabric for purse and tote bag! 😍❤🧵🪡 PS also went to a crochet beginner's class this week, apparently I'm making a headband...

can someone who is a Twt expert please kindly advise on how I can post a GIF/meme and how I create a thread please. Anyone who knows me from Twitter will know that I can't possibly live without those options...😳😳😳😃😃😃 diolch

Luna and I found this rather peaceful spot on our morning walk yesterday. About a mile or so from our house. You really don’t need to leave Cardiff to find some lovely countryside here #wales #cardiff

Just saying Hi to old & new friends on here. I'm Lady Greensleeves on Twitter so a Twitter refugee with a foot in both camps currently until I've helped my friends to find this safe place. Thanks everyone for giving us a home. x

I've written a piece on why the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act doesn't - and probably can't - kickstart the transformation we need in .

For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:

-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)

-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.

-Mastodon is an open platform where anyone can start their own server, and they don't need tech knowledge if they use a service like masto.host or federation.spacebear.ee

...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁

Bore da pawb. Just a very small selection of photos to demonstrate the hobbies I mentioned in my introductory tweet yesterday. And I've just signed up to a crochet beginners class next week! 🤗🤗🤗
