I finally finished my Ship Ahoy! pattern. I originally planned and started this pattern almost 2 years ago. I kept putting off the centre piece square and the joining. This year I was determined to finally finish off all my started projects. So here it is in all its glory! 

Not Your Grandma's Quilt!

My "Not Your Grandma's Quilt!" is now available in my shop!.

This pattern took a while to put together but I'm so happy with how it turned out. I wanted to create a blanket that was colourful and full of texture, but was a modern twist on the traditional quilted blanket. So here it is....I hope you like it! 

Dachshund Madness!

I've been designing a lot of dachshunds lately! My daughter is dachshund obsessed so it all started from her. I designed a dachshund cushion for Crochet Now magazine. Then a fun dachshund square for the Hobby Craft CAL 2023 which then lead onto the walkies bag and then the Walkies! blanket. 

I'm excited to release my Walkies! Blanket and Hello Sausage! patterns. They are available in my shop in both US & UK terms.

The Walkies! bag and square can be found here....

Spring Has Sprung Blanket


This is my latest pattern design. I've never created a filet crochet pattern before so it was a bit of a learning curve. I really enjoyed making this pattern it was so easy to do. I've also made the falling blossom flowers  part of the pattern - so no appliques ! Hope you like it!
