About me

I’m a born Londoner, and have lived in Oxford for most of my adult life. I’m a crocheter who knits, sews and takes up other crafts from time to time. I’ve had some patterns published, and have a pattern-book library that I should probably use more of.

I like writing, eating and stitching, and writing lists of all the things I want to read, cook and make.

When I’m not here, I’m in charge of putting a large number of young people in the vicinity of a large number of books and hoping information passes from one to the other.

When I’m not there either, I’m probably on Twitter or Instagram where I go by jadesfire2808.

  1. Hi Laura, I hope all is well.
    Just wanted to drop you a line (I attend the crochet course last year). I’ve inherited a very large stash of crochet goodies which I would like to share or could do with some guidance…. as there is sooo much stuff …… see posting and photos on my blog http://thepengellybelly.blogspot.com . I also finished my first crochet cushion! No stopping me now! Take care, Nicola


  2. Hi Laura,

    Hope you’re well. On Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd December, Oxford Business Park is holding hands-on wreath-making workshops and we’d love for you to come along and join in. The workshops are free of charge and will be run by award-winning landscapers Intregitas. We’re encouraging people who work on the park as well as selected guests to get into the Christmas spirit by learning how to make a Christmas wreath and taking it home with them in good time for the festive season.

    Two complimentary workshops will be held on 2nd and 3rd December, spanning various sessions on either days. All materials, such as seasonal and festive plants and decorations, as well as refreshments, will be provided. Do you think this is something you’d be interested in joining in with? If so, do let us know which date and time would suit you best!
