Christmas Snowballs


I have had a good week getting lots of projects finished. I am still working on a collection of rabbit toys.  The small doll pattern has gone for testing so will be going live soon.

Rabbit nearly finished - Just needs ends darning in and some stuffing.

I have just added these cute snowballs onto my Etsy store.  The pattern includes 3 sizes of snowballs with the choice of 2 hats each. 

Take care,

Springtime in Paris progress


I started this blanket a while ago so I thought I would update you with the progress.  I blogged about our trip to Paris in April, which you can read about here.

This is mile a minute style blanket is worked in strips.  The colours were inspired by the photograph of tulips in Paris.

I am also busy getting prepared for the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC in Birmingham in November this year.  Last year woolpacks were very popular so I have ordered a little more wool than normal.  Where do you keep 500 more balls of wool?

You can also buy wool packs online if you can't make the show.  Bright Blanket available in three colour ways but please contact me if you want different colours.  Seaton Blanket also available in threes different colour ways.

Happy Crocheting,

Sorry, long time no blog :-)

Happy Tuesday

Sorry to have been so long in adding to this blog,
I have been very busy over the holidays and we have been away a lot as well.

The last trip was Dubai and Mauritius I did do some crochet while I was there and on the planes, a new doll, pattern and name to follow, I will have to alter her face she looks grumpy in the picture.

I am remaking Christmas snowballs to take to the NEC Birmingham in November for the Hobbycrafts Show, I can't wait to meet everyone again.

The misty foggy mornings are here this week and I don't feel like doing much when it's dark and gloomy, how about you?
Must get on with the jobs, ironing done, washing started and now to crochet, hurrah !!

Morning making cards


I have had a lovely morning helping my daughter making lots of teacher thank you cards for the end of term.  She wanted them to have flowers on so we used an assortment of patterns from the Flower Frenzy booklet.  We also added some buttons to make them a little more interesting.  As she needed some cards for men we did some apples and a bus for the bus driver.  :-)

Please note - Apple and bus are not in flower frenzy booklet as I just made them up this morning.

Don't forget there is currently 10% off all order over £3.00 using the code 10Aug2015 on the Etsy store.

Thank you,
