about


Hi! Welcome to my little corner of blogland. I’m Maria and I live in Northumberland, England, with my two cats Ziggy and Kiki. They can often be seen in my photos ‘testing’ out my latest creations! By day I have a very busy and demanding career in healthcare so when it comes to me time I like to relax by creating...oh and enjoying the odd glass or two of gin and tonic!
I’ve been interested and arts and crafts since I can remember and this led me to discovering crochet. With the help of a friend and sheer determination I finally mastered the dark art of hooking! Learning to crochet isn't so straightforward when you're left handed! 
I find my inspiration from just about everything in day to day life and can often be seen taking snap shots of random objects that have sparked some idea in my brain! I adore colour, especially if it’s combined with clever designs and I find it fascinating how choices of colour can make or break a project.
