Episode 2 : Coastal Crochet with Eleonora Tully

I am super excited to be sharing this week’s episode with you. It features none other than Eleonora Tully from Coastal Crochet!

Eleonora has been immersed in yarn crafts all her life but 5 years ago began her blog Coastal Crochet where she shares her love of crochet and beautiful photos taken on coastal walks near her home in the south of England along with her adorable Miniature Schnauzer Salty.

Eleonora & Salty

Eleonora has used her blog to run blanket crochet-alongs uniting a huge community of crocheters across the world. Each of her blankets have had a seaside theme and feature shell stitches and waves among many other stitch techniques. From the first Seaside Stashbusting Blanket to last year’s Changing Tides blanket and now her current Beachcomber blanket thousands of crocheters have joined in the crochet-alongs getting great enjoyment out of following the patterns each week.

Thank you so much Eleonora for speaking to me for Making Stitches!
