Lottie & Lilly
My name is Helga Doyle. I live surrounded by, and take inspiration from, the beautiful countryside around Calderdale, West Yorkshire. I have had a life-long love of animals and creating beautiful gifts.
I knitted my dad a tie for his birthday at the age of 4, which he still has to this day. I gained my first gold star at school for a piece of embroidery I did which I proudly was asked to take to show the head teacher. I have won prizes at local fairs for my handicrafts and I have also run (and attended) more workshops that I care to mention.
One of the most rewarding things I have done is to teach children with emotional and social needs the pleasure that can be gained from creating something which is unique and individual.
Having been forced into early retirement I wanted to pursue my interests, so as well as walking the dogs and riding my ponies I now spend much of my time creating.
My aim is to create things that are individual but still affordable. No two items are ever identical as they are all handmade by myself. I like to think my items give the receiver as much pleasure as I get making them.
As well as the gifts that are displayed in my online shop I also make custom designs and can tailor my designs to suit your requirements. I also specialise in hand made wedding favours and table decorations.
