Hi! I'm Maria and I live in Northunberland, England with my two cats Ziggy and Kiki. They can often be seen in my photos 'testing' out my latest creations! I've been interested in arts and crafts since I can remember and this led me to discovering crochet. With the help of a friend and sheer determination, I finally mastered the dark art of hooking! I find my inspiration from just about everything and can often be seen taking snapshots of random objects that have sparked my creativity. I adore colour, especially if it's combined with clever design and I'm fascinated by how choices of colour can make or break a project. You can see my work on my blog: 50 Shades of 4ply.
