Designer Spotlight

November, Carol: Squirrel House Designs

Each month we showcase one of our designers, giving an insight into the 'mind behind the maker'

Hi I’m Carol from Squirrel House Designs. 

A lifelong fascination with all things creative has led me to dabble with a wide variety of crafting techniques and different design mediums. I am a retired teacher living here on the NW Coast in Penguin.  I am lucky to live in a rural setting here in Tasmania.  My family are all overseas, and between visiting them, I use my time creating.


An unusual pastime has been the design and production of knitted and crocheted succulents and cactus, following the popularity of these amazing plants.  I create potted specimens inspired by my own real plant collection. I rarely use a written pattern – I enjoy re-creating  the amazing colours and shapes from yarns and wools.  They are the ideal gift for those who do not have a “green thumb”… no maintenance required. 


This past 12 months I have revisited my work in Watercolour Paints, something I have enjoyed most of my life.  Of course I couldn’t resist creating a series of Cactus and Succulent Paintings both for framing as limited edition prints and in Card format. 

I hope you enjoy my work!
