My Polish mother-in-law Henryka, taught me the basics of crochet in 1973/1974, during the time I was living in Poland.
Over the years I improved and developed my crochet skills through self-teaching by practising, experimenting and learning new stitches and techniques from crochet pattern books. Crochet became my much-loved hobby.
In 2005-2008 my hand knit and crochet creations were sold in boutiques as well as the markets in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Australia and in 2006-2007 at Spitalfields, London, UK.
I currently live in the UK and spend my time enjoying a simpler life.
I no longer make accessories/garments for sale, I have turned my passion for creating into designing simple and practical crochet and knit patterns, some are free and some are for sale.
I am grateful for you visiting my profile and shop, May you always be happy!
