{Design Team} Introducing...Lane from Williowlane Designs

Last but by no means least, please welcome Lane to our Design Team....

"Hi I’m Lane from Willowlane Designs. I am an English girl living in South Wales not too far away from the bridge so I can get my fill of English soil from time to time lol!  I currently do not have a “proper” job as the male members in my family like to call it.  I am a level 2 TA and hope to one day get to work in a school, just got to wait for my youngest to go to school full time. I have been making all sorts of things for quite some time but really got into it to pay for a headstone for my three little boys who were born sleeping over the last 14 years. Last year they got their stone but I was more then hooked to just stop making so I carried on.

I love fabric and have a huge hoard, lots of it i can’t bring myself to use, I take it out of the box, give it a smooth and fold it back up to put away until the next time.  I am half self taught and half you-tube video taught for technique.  I get my ideas from all over the place. I love to hand stitch and enjoy a challenge like this Captain Jack Hawkins Cushion I did last year. I also taught myself to make this little dolly from start to finish.

I am also the typical tradesperson in that i make lots for others and all the things i want to make for my house are still in the to do book. I also sing in a ladies harmony group called Mello’D’ which i love.
I was so pleased to be picked to be park of the team as one, I love all things fabric and two, it will challenge me to stretch my creative mind."
Thank you Lane!  I adore the little doll and the little dolls dress.  Such gorgeous makes.  More of Lanes gorgeous makes can be found on her Facebook page.
