Her family lives in the UK, in a place called Forest of Dean that looks absolutely gorgeous based on photographs I’ve perused online. She shares on her blog, Tales from Mount Pleasant,

“I have finally come to terms with the fact that our tiny, end-terrace ‘new-build’ – rather than the character cottage in the woods I always dreamt of – will more than likely be our home for life. I very much hope you will join me on my journey to create a comfortable hand crafted, family home full of character on a shoe string budget.”

One of the first things she shared with the #crochetconcupiscence tag on Instagram was this simple but elegant crochet frame.

Unique color choice here. Adore it! And I love how the spiral flowers are executed in the center of each square here.

Beautiful detailed crochet jewelry. It looks like it’s been attached to some other type of center fabric and it’s been accented with buttons in beautiful colors.
