Description

Local Castleblayney gal with a love for crochet making all sorts of fancies for children and adults alike! I was always a fan of the varied art of making "something out of nothing". When I fell pregnant with my first daughter, I felt the overwhelming urge for her to have something special - something I made, just for her. I had dabbled in knitting before, but it just didn't have the hold that crochet did once I finally started. Day in, day out like a fever - I constantly had a hook in my hand. Fast forward three years later and I am attempting to make a business out of my hobby - everyone's dream!
I work with a variety of yarn types - some luxurious, some budget and some just for fun! I live and breath all things crochet, and spend every free minute I have scouring the internet for new patterns and yarn sales.
My two little girls - Abigail and Claire - are my top models and they love to watch Mummy work! My husband, Pierce, is incredibly supportive (until the yarn stash gets out of control) and has been known to ask the odd crochet-related question or two when he thinks no-one is listening!

So true guys. So many people will say "But I can get one just like it in Penneys for half that price!". Truth is, you can't. The love and patience that goes into a handmade piece - be it crochet, knitting, loom work, sewing or any other form of crafting, cannot be replicated by a machine. Every single piece is different, even if the same pattern is followed, as no two people will read it quite the same way. There is a reason why nearly all heirlooms are hand-made ;)
