About Me

Hi, I'm Nancy. Thanks for stopping by to read my blog, I hope you like it!

I live in Stoke Newington, North London in a teeny but lovely flat with my boyfriend Simon. I'm from Newcastle upon Tyne and although I live in London my heart will always belong to the North East.

Alongside writing this blog I work as a freelance pattern designer and I run my homeware company which you can find here. I love designing for textiles, its my true passion and I set up my brand straight after graduating university with a degree in printed textile design.

I also work as a freelance journalist and stylist specialising in lifestyle, crafts and DIY. I have a creative column in The Guardian and I have written for Crafts Beautiful, Homemaker, Mollie Makes and 91 magazine.
