Hi, my name is Carina Envoldsen-Harris and Polka & Bloom is where I create colourful embroidery patterns and more. I am a Danish author, blogger and designer working from my cosy home just outside London in the UK.

Stitched Blooms, my first book, was published in October 2013 by Lark Crafts.

I have studied Italian language & history, art history and multimedia design. I used to think these different interests made me terribly scattered but they have all come in handy in my freelance life!

My work is inspired by lots of things: flowers, leaves, pop culture, architecture, art history, folk art and, above all else: colour. My patterns are full of colour and I hope they add some extra brightness to anyone who stitches them!

I write a blog called Carina's Craftblog and I'm also a co-founding editor of the &Stitches blog.

In my spare time I like to embroider (yes, I do it for fun as well!), crochet, sew and draw & paint.

I am a vegetarian so I also like to spend time in the kitchen, chopping vegetables and coming up with fun new ways to prepare chickpeas. I love chickpeas! :-)
