However, Mum was a sunny person with a positive attitude and a good sense of humour, so she wouldn’t want me to feel sad. My Mum loved her crafts, not just knitting and crochet. She was a dressmaker too and not a bad cook! She also liked embroidery and when I was young she attended evening classes and learnt how make items with leather.
I am confident that my passion for crafts was inherited from my Mum and for that I am grateful, for nothing makes me happier than when I am creating something beautiful.
In honour of Mum and in her memory this week, I have decided to showcase three people and shops from Folksy who all have a passion for yarn crafts: Linda from Uniquely Yours, Natalie from NOfkants Curios and Polly from PollyKrafts.
Natalie from NOfkantsCurios
“I enjoy knitting and working with yarn and wool, making items from simple scarves through to handmade handbags. My inspiration is often taken from nature, or by the look of how differing yarns, wool and other products work together. Each of these items will be unique and guaranteed handmade.”
“I love to crochet and knit, it`s a real passion. I don`t make anything to a pattern, so everything is unique for each unique person.”
Linda is a great blogger so do have a look at her blog which I find always interesting and she loves to feature handmade crafts from Folksy.
Polly from PollyKrafts
“My grandmother brought me up and very patiently taught me to knit and crochet and sew as soon as I was old enough to hold the needles. I cannot remember a time when I wasn’t making and designing. My passion is mostly with yarns and fabric. I love to sit in my Cornish garden knitting or doing my crochet in the sun, listening to the birds or the sound of the sheep in the field beyond.”
I hope you enjoy looking at these stunning knitted or crocheted items from three talented designers/makers from Folksy. Click on any of the photos to view the item in their shop! Enjoy!
