My name is Eleonora. I am half Dutch, half English and live on the south coast of England with my husband, three fast growing children and a Miniature Schnauzer called Salty.
I am passionate about crochet! I am a crochet designer and draw so much inspiration from the sea and coastal surroundings where we live… I have crocheted for many years having initially learnt in my childhood and more recently undertaking the International Diploma in Crochet As a result my crochet designs are very varied and I have enjoyed using a variety of crochet techniques including Tunisian crochet, Broomstick crochet and Filet crochet. I love sharing my passion for crochet with others and enjoy teaching and hosting crochet workshops, writing this blog and sharing photos on Instagram I have had designs published in magazines including ‘Simply Crochet’ and ‘Crochet Now’.
I love crochet! I love how it looks, I love its versatility and more than anything I love to actually do crochet.
A craft I can take anywhere with me and the joy of gradually seeing each stitch transform the yarn in my hands into something beautiful.
I also love to live by the coast and am constantly inspired by my coastal surroundings.
So Coastal Crochet is born…
