About Me

I started this blog mainly as a way to keep a track of the things I make, the successes and the failures and what I learn along the way. I use Ravelry for all of my knitting and crochet projects but have yet to find anything similar for sewing, so at least this way I can keep my own records.

My name is Jill and I live in Hull, East Yorkshire. I have crafted since I was a child making clothes for my dolls and sticking stuff that appealed to me into scrapbooks. I’ve been knitting since my late teens, I used to cross stitch and I’ve been crocheting since about 2018, then last year I came back to sewing after a long break.

I create because I enjoy the process of learning and doing. That means I often make things that I don’t have a use for so I decided to open an Etsy shop to try and sell some of those things. Please have a look CraftedbyCuthie
