About

I’ve always liked making things. All sorts of things. As I kid I was obsessed with origami and making paper furniture for my doll’s house. I would make TV sets where you could change the channel, record players with records and tiny toilet rolls. I also loved to draw. I still love to draw. I became very allergic to nickel as a teenager and started to make my own jewellery with no metal. I bought a sewing machine when I was at university and learned to make clothes. I recently learned to spin wool and I’m always keen to try new things. My main two steady passions are watercolour painting and crochet. I like to go urban sketching – drawing and painting on location in places where things are happening and then posting the scans and in-progress photos here. I like to make up my own crochet creations and then, if they seem unique and interesting enough, I write down the patterns, and share them here. mostly accessories like gloves and hats, household objects and amigurumi. I love amigurumi. The first thing I ever crocheted was a little bat from a book I was bought for my birthday.

If you’re enjoying my site – maybe you’ve tried some of the crochet patterns or followed a craft tutorial or watercolour step by step – and want to contribute to keep it going (I pay for a premium account to keep it free of ads) then you can buy me a coffee (or paintbrush, or ball of wool :)) here:

  1. Hello! I am interested in selling some of these at a craft show in my home town and wanted to check with you first. Would you be okay with this if I include a link to the pattern on the tag? Any other requests? Let me know!

    Thanks!
