Sandra Paul is the craft blogger, podcaster and pattern designer behind Cherry Heart who loves to crochet, knit and sew. She lives in a small village in Bedfordshire with her husband, daughter, a couple of pets and an ever expanding stash of yarn and fabric.
Re-discovering knitting as an adult by dusting off some rusty childhood skills one Christmas Day, it was only a matter of weeks before she knew that she needed to learn crochet too. One ‘how to’ book and a stressful evening of fumbled fingers later, a slightly crooked granny square and a brand new obsession had been born.
These days Sandra’s blog has expanded from simply being a place to share her crafty adventures into a home for all kinds of handy tutorials and beautiful patterns. You’ll also find an area called ‘Crochet Corner’ entirely dedicated to all things hooky. It’s a great place to remind yourself of the basics with her stitch directory and you’ll find plenty more tips, tricks and advice there too.
A home bird at heart, Sandra loves staying at home, having crafty adventures and dabbling in home decoration, all of which she likes to share on her blog and podcast. As well as her first crafting loves, she likes to experiment with weaving, quilting, cross stitch, baking, gardening and generally doing anything to avoid the housework.
