I’ve always enjoyed crafts and have been knitting and cross stitching for many years. Crochet eluded me for ages until a few years ago I decided I was fed up of seeing cute patterns I couldn’t make and put some time in to teaching myself from youtube videos. I started sewing in order to make costumes for the Rocky Horror shadowcast I was in, and the realised how useful it is to be able to make/alter clothes when you have short legs like me. More recently I’ve taken up embroidery and tatting after being inspired by projects others posted in crafting facebook groups I’m in.
I love supporting other designers and have bought many patterns on Etsy and Ravelry, and recently I’ve started designing some of my own. This blog will document my adventures trying new crafts, show off projects I’m working on, and probably feature some of my own patterns if anyone would like to try them out
