What Delilah Did is the work of me, Sophie Simpson (aka Delilah), perpetual dreamer and purveyor of extraordinary things.

I am a mildly eccentric girl with old-fashioned values and a rather overactive imagination, living in a sleepy village in Norfolk, England. My main obsessions are period dramas, folk music, baking and any craft involving fabric, yarn or thread. Basically if a granny likes to do it then I probably do too.

As you can no doubt already tell, I am particularly fond of cross stitch. Not the kind of cross stitch that you see in most craft shops, but a sort of amalgamation of antique heirloom embroidery and modern design. I have found it to be the most calming and lovely of all crafts and I am absolutely addicted to it. However when I began I couldn't find any designs I wanted to stitch so I started to make my own.

Things have sort of snowballed since then and I am now a full time designer/stitcher/writer/tedious-businessy-type-chores-doer, which suits me rather perfectly. When I am not working on things for What Delilah Did, I can be found designing projects and patterns for the likes of CrossStitcher Magazine and the Mollie Makes books; publications which (although I am obviously somewhat biased) I can thoroughly recommend looking up.

If you would like to know more about me and the things that I make, please visit my blog. That is also the place to keep your eyes peeled for new designs, course updates and so forth.

I hope to see you there!
