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:
keep the site, and my brain, ticking over by throwing some change in the tip jar. Money will go towards art and craft supplies. If you want to give more than £1 just change the quantity in the box. Thank you!
