Gorgeous New Girly Slippers and more....

I have been very busy the last few weeks, designing and creating patterns for new girly slippers and bootees, suitable for babies and up to 5 years of age or so. They have cute appliques of animals, flowers, stars, hearts and fruit. I have begun listing them on my Etsy store. I have also been making up more of my wrist warmers, again using my own pattern, which is proving popular.  Here are some photos of recent makes.  I hope you enjoy them and please feel free to leave comments.

Delicious and Scrummy Treats Abound in My New Etsy Store!

Just take a look at my tasty new cat blankets, now available in my Etsy Store. These two have a blend of colours inspired by my favourite chocolates and ice creams ...

... first up, we have the Strawberry Chocolate Cream Cat or Small Dog Blanket in luscious shades of white, pinks, and dark reds, mixed with milk chocolate

... and then to whet your appetite further, there's the Chocolate Fudge Sundae Cat or Small Dog Blanket, a delicious blend of vanilla, caramel, toffee, milk and dark chocolates and chocolate flakes. Yum!

These are one of a kind blankets - I don't have any of these yarns remaining, so will be unable to make another exactly like this. They measures approximately 17" (43 cm) diameter.

These very lovely blankets would make a cosy bed for the cat or small dog in your life. You could also use them as a seat pad, or a topper for a cushion, or even as a decorative mat to set off a bowl or other piece of art.

I am planning on adding to this confectionary range of blankets, so watch this space for more details.

Hello and Welcome to The Enchanted Grove

I am based in the Highlands of Scotland, UK, not far from farmland, woodland and the sea.

I have been an avid crafter ever since I was a small child, and learnt to knit and crochet over 30 years ago. You can find out more about me here and can view my Etsy Store:, where you can find my crochet pattern designs, as well as my own crochet creations, from bags, scarves, hats, wrist warmers, cat blankets to baby shoes.

I am a self taught artist and love watercolours and acrylics, as well as sketching. I love painting imaginative landscapes in watercolour, as well as portraits of teddy bears in acrylics, so if you would like something custom created, then I am happy to discuss your requirements.
