Hi, I'm Lesley and I love to create in yarn and fabric.

My two creative passions are crochet and sewing, which means I can never walk past a wool, fabric or haberdashery shop! Finding a beautiful new fabric, yarn or trimming makes my day. All the items I make are my own design, and I rarely make the exact same item twice.

Crocheting is just soooo relaxing, after all, what other craft can you do with your feet up next to a cup of tea? I never work from a commercial pattern, but create my own, often making up the design as I crochet along.

A couple of years ago I bought a beautiful 1950s hand crank Singer sewing machine, which has inspired me to take up sewing again after a break of many years. I just love the clickety clack of the machine and, as my sewing room overlooks a busy market street, I can watch the world go by as I sew. The beautiful fabrics I find inspire the items I make, and I design and cut my own paper patterns.

Creating a new item, whether with yarn or fabric, really gets me excited, and I love to see how the finished article looks. I hope they bring you as much enjoyment as they do me.
