about me

My name is Jill and I live in Swanage, Dorset, England. We moved to the coast about 11 years ago and we absolutely love it, we have some of the best countryside and beaches for miles around.

As MR P. and I had both finished work very early we took the opportunity to get a dog, something we could not have done whilst working.  It took us 2 years to decide what type of dog but we finally settled on a Dalmatian.

Having worked in IT/Computing for many years I now concentrate on the things I never had time for – Crafts. I occasionally give training workshops in textiles (mainly knitting, crochet and sewing).

Designing knitting and crochet patterns and have recently started supplying a local shop with handmade crafts.  I plan to sell my patterns designs (Ravelry and Etsy) and give the others away as Free Patterns.

I spend a lot of my time knitting & crocheting for the shop, going out to lunch, knitting club and of course walking spotty dog.

  1. Ha ha my name is Jill I live by the sea and I have a spotty dog (a dalmatian X possibly) we call him a Mongolian Mousehound. I wanted your cupcake pattern and from today I am following your blog by email.
    I also retired early 🙂
    Have a great weekend – I’m in Brixham, Devon.

    1. What can I say but SNAP. My whole life revolves around spotty dog and my crafting but I love it and I love where I live by the sea. Thank you for your comments. I spent a week in Brixham a few years ago, what a great place, especially when the fishing boats came back to port what a great sight. jw
