Hello and welcome to my shop I've been crafting since I was around 6 years old! I've always had a passion for art and crafts. I studied art and design at college and gained a BA(hons) degree in textile crafts at university where I graduated in 2003, since then I've been making, stitching, painting every chance I get.

I enjoy using gorgeous colours in my work, I like to bring out details with stitch, be in words in a particular font or the cute little face of a penguin. My favourite material to use is felt for appliqué, I love the texture and versatility of it, and soft canvas for stitching as it keeps it's shapes and looks great.

People often say I must have the patience of a saint but I don't really think of it like that, the time flys by when It's just me and my sewing box, It really is the most relaxing part of my day when I get to design and stitch my wares, an extremely therapeutic experience.

I do a lot of commission work and would love to bring your ideas to life, if there's a cushion design you have in mind perhaps a special personalised gift for a loved one just message me and I'll get straight onto it! :)
