Hello and welcome to the first Pineapple Talk post! My name is Emma, I am the person behind Pineapple Fibre Art; I am the designer and maker, the finance officer, the marketing consultant, the office administrator and the tea provider! I am also a mother of two; my son Alwyn is 9 in March and my daughter Rowan will be 7 in a few weeks. We also have a dog called Tim (and yes he's tiny!) and a tortoise called Edith. I live with this loud lot and my husband Dane, an eye nurse, in sunny (ha) South Devon, within 5 miles of the sea and 5 miles of Dartmoor.
I love pretty things, textiles, ceramics, crochet and jewellery and am so fortunate to have come across so many awesome makers doing my Pineapple thing, I'll be sharing my favourite finds here. I am also learning about interiors, about how to style and photograph my hoops to let them sing and help you guys to invisige them in your homes.
So, there will be pictures, links to other makers and designers, pictures of the dog and the beautiful places I walk with him. Expect hoops, yarn and work-in-progress shots in the reality of a smallish family home, rather than just the finished shots seen in Instagram squares.
Short and sweet today, but now I am not staring at the blank page with a mixture of guilt and writers block, I'll be back soon!
