What is your favourite type of project to crochet?

I love to make a quick project! Being a Mum quick projects are my go-to for my crochet fix! But I especially love to crochet blankets as well!


Which of your crochet projects are you proudest of?

I love my ‘Rainbow Pom Blanket’, it was the first blanket pattern I ‘designed’ and released, the pics on insta always get a lot of love which is fab!


We might not all be able to go very far right now, but we can still dream about holidays! What’s your dream vacation destination?

Right now -anywhere!! Though my absolute dream destination is to visit The Maldives one day and stay on one of the water villas, have lots of massages, eat yummy food, drink cocktails and ride a bike around the island! Ahhhh if only…..

Tell us something unexpected about yourself!

In the past for one of my jobs I was a sales rep for just over 10 years selling fish tanks! It was fun and I got to work on a few tv shows, including ‘60 minute Makeover’, ‘Peter Andre My Life show‘ and ‘This Morning’!

What’s the best piece of crochet advice you’ve ever received?

From my Grandma, ‘practice makes perfect!’ And label your wips with hook size, yarn used and stitch used!


Where’s your favourite place to crochet?

I love to crochet in my craft room, it’s my little haven! I turn my music on and I’m in the crochet zone! I occasionally crochet on my sofa in front of the TV too!


Do you have any big crochet plans coming up this year?

My plans for this year and going forward is that I’d love to work with more yarn brands, and work on more designing. One thing I definitely want to tick off my to-do list is to release a crochet garment pattern!

Where can people find out about you?

Instagram is my fave! I love producing little squares of colour, definitely a feast for your eyes! You’ll find me @littlegemscraftshop I’m also on Facebook with the same handle @littlegemscraftshop
