Hi there and welcome to Shirley and Eadie! Named after both of my sweet and strong grandmothers, I created this space  to share my love of fiber arts, good home cooking, and southern traditions which were sparked in me from childhood by those two lovely ladies mentioned above.

My name is Ashlyn, and I am so humbled you are wondering a bit about me. I studied renewable natural resources in college and currently work as an environmental scientist in my home state of Louisiana. I learned to crochet as a teenager from my grandmothers, and fiber art has become a big part of my life, too. I love dabbling in any fiber art, but crochet will always be the dearest to me. I do a little crochet design work and have been lucky enough to have a few of my pieces published with some lovely companies. I live with my most favorite person (my sweet and funny husband) and our two pups in a little blue 1920s farmhouse where you can often find me in my kitchen, garden, or on the porch with a fiber project and iced coffee in hand.

Thank you for stopping by and reading a little part of my story. I hope this space inspires you and brings a little joy and peace to your day.

If you would be interested in a collaboration or a custom piece please contact me at shirleyandeadie (AT) gmail (DOT) com. I would truly love to hear from you!
