The Blessed Solace

Solace (noun) :
Comfort in sorrow.

I’m Carolyn, wife and dog mum. I work part time in administration, and love spending time with my wonderful husband and adorable dog.

Blessed Solace Design was started during the first covid-19 lockdown in March 2020 as a way for me to find comfort and joy whilst staying at home. My favourite book is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, the name for my shop came from a quote from the book:

“Go on with your work as usual, for work is a blessed solace.”

In a time when we could not leave home, go to work, or see loved ones, crafting became my blessed solace, and now I enjoy sharing this same comfort and love through the pieces I make.

I mostly make fabric pieces such as bags, hair scrunchies and bunting, and I also enjoy making handmade cards.
