What I do...
I make crocheted hats and scarves, blankets, shawls and other accessories. Everything is carefully crocheted by hand using new yarn. All of the filling used in cushions is hypo-allergenic hollow fibre. I can also crochet to commission, so if you have something you want making why not contact me, and I'll do my best to help.
I have been crocheting since the age of thirteen, having been taught by my mother who was in turn taught by someone she worked with, but I think it is in my genes anyhow, as my grandmother crocheted the most beautiful doilies and table covers (some of which I have inherited.) The first item I made was a long red and white striped scarf, which led to my first commission - a similar one in red, white and black for a friend who was a supporter of Man. United FC. I have been crocheting ever since!
I like making bags, hats, scarves and brooches, like the roses below. I was pleased to be making red poppies (in 2014) for a WW1 commemorative exhibition, and have thoroughly enjoyed trying out the animals made from the Heidi Bears patterns which use the African Flower polygons.
Most of all I love experimenting and seeing where it takes me... sitting in my comfy armchair listening to the radio or an audio book, with a ball of yarn, a crochet hook and I'm a very happy bunny!
