A dual citizen of both the United states and the United Kingdom, Leah was born at Hillingdon Air Force Base in the UK to an American father and a British mother. After traveling the world in her early adulthood, Leah was first introduced to the art of cross-stitching while awaiting the birth of her eldest daughter, and quickly developed a keen eye for the elegant yet simple designs, which she has offered cross-stitching enthusiasts through various platforms such as Etsy. Leah's Etsy business continues to grow as she adds new designs every month. Thousands of her patterns have been purchased by stitchers from over 35 countries. When she's not busy making patterns, making food or cleaning up after her little (and not so little) people she loves fair-weather cycling, photographing flowers, knitting and playing billiards.
