I use vintage patterns, some of which belonged to my grandmother, with today's fabrics and yarns. I take vintage needlework magazines and work from the patterns in them. The magazines date from 1912 through to the fifties, and I try and use the patterns from them as they would have been originally used. Sometimes I will adapt them and make something else. I prefer to specialize with the thirties and forties patterns and occasionally dip my toe into the fifties.

When I feel the need to bring things up to date, sometimes adapting the original vintage patterns. I also design my own patterns so you can make lovely items too.

Flock of Seagulls!

Of the knitted kind!  
I thought I would knit some Seagulls which are now for sale in my shop (see the side bar).  The pattern was devised by myself which is also for sale if you fancy trying your hand at knitting your own.


  1. Saw lots of these on my recent few days at the seaside, at least yours wouldn't have tried to pinch my chips!

  2. I know you did these quite some time ago ..... but they are gorgeous ! Love them...so are so clever ! I cant knit :) x


Please leave a comment I read them every single one!
