I love Knitting & Stitching, any spare time I have, you will see me busy clicking needles or stitching with thread.
I hold my City & Guilds in Hand Embroidery & Textiles. I started designing knitting patterns & embroidery patterns in 2012.
I enjoy the repetitiveness of knitting and I love creating dolls from a variety of inspiration. I have combined my interest of historical and national costume into my doll designs. My dolls are based on Grodnertal/ Dutch Wooden Dolls.
My embroidery designs are based on Folk Art/ Naïve Art & Tartans. My maternal side is descended from the Stewart, Bruce, Campbell, St. Clair & Buchanan Scottish Clans.
My work is completely original and my designs are simple to make. All my knitting patterns are worked flat, with two needles, but they are easy enough to knit on the round.
I hope you enjoy looking at my patterns, as much as I enjoy designing them. Jo x
