Kristin Nicholas Design


Welcome to my world of color, creativity, knitting, crochet, embroidery, stitching, farming, and life! I'm Kristin Nicholas and I am so happy to have you visit. Grab a cup of coffee or a pot of tea and sit down and enjoy my colorful world.

I make things. I knit. I stitch. I take photos. I blog. I write books. I illustrate them.

My family and I live on a working sheep farm with over 300 sheep, 3 Border Collies, 3 guard animals - a donkey, a llama and a Great Pyrenees Dog named Winston, many chickens, many cats.

You can read my blog by clicking here or on the link on the bottom of this page.
