Crochet - Beautiful Yarn & A Giveaway

Crochet - Beautiful Yarn & A Giveaway

A little while ago I received a lovely email from Amy Small at Knit Collage. She told me that she had made up some of my collars in her Maharani Silk and oh they looked gorgeous. Knit Collage create the most beautiful, unique yarns I have ever come across and after admiring them she kindly offered to send some for me to try...

Hello – I hope you all have enjoyed the glorious Bank Holiday weather?

I have a review and a lovely giveaway, which I am very excited about today. When I was contacted by the fabulous Crafty Magazine to see if I’d like to join a blog tour reviewing Hannah Read-Baldrey’s new book ‘Girls' Night In - Craft, Cakes and Cocktails for the Ultimate Party’ I did not hesitate. So today I am following on from the lovely Claire from Claireabellemakes in giving my thoughts and if you like the sound of the book then read on to the end for a chance to win your own copy...

Paper Mache Hot Air Balloons

And a bit of a catch up...

Paper Mache Hot Air Balloons

Hello! It feels like a very long time since I've posted anything here. I have been busy crocheting, although recently my efforts have been focused on designs for other people. This has been both exciting and challenging. I have enjoyed being able to pin down some of my ideas into new projects - it has taken me out of my comfort zone but this is a good thing!

Anyway I thought I'd stop by quickly today to share some of the Easter crafting the children (and I) enjoyed...

Crochet - Cushion Love

The Crocodile Flower

Crochet - Cushion Love

Hello! I came to a bit of a standstill this weekend with my crochet projects. Lulu's blanket is still coming along and although I've completed 120 squares I had not sewn in any ends. I'm now paying the price and trying to sew them in after I've joined each row. Making it slow going (and slightly tedious) but I know it will be worth it in the end. I've also been working on some new ideas but what I really wanted was a weekend project, something that I could finish!

I took to Ravelry to find something pretty that I could make which would take my mind off the numbers/stitches/charts that had been clouding my thoughts...

Crochet - Granny Square Tea Cosy

Crochet - Granny Square Tea Cosy

Where oh where is spring? It's bitterly cold here and that has been reflected in the things I am working on. Lulu's blanket is coming along nicely and this cold weather means I'm still enjoying it. I'm getting increasingly hopeful that this one will be finished soon! I have also been asked to make a couple of tea cosies recently, which gave me the opportunity to try out an idea that had been brewing in my mind...

Crochet - A New Hat for Lulu

Crochet - A New Hat for Lulu

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I posted! I didn't crochet at all when the children were home for half term. Not a stitch. It had got to the point where I had so many ideas and half started projects that I was starting to feel overwhelmed by the chaos in my head! So I took a step back and instead of crocheting in the evenings I read some books (I've missed reading as much as I used to), caught up on some TV and had a break from 'creativity'. 

I went back to my notebook this week and slowly made my way through some projects/requests...

Crochet Pineapple Hearts

Happy Valentines Day

Crochet Pineapple Hearts

The children are on their half term this week so I've not really had time to do any crocheting. But we've been busy with friends and family, trips to the cinema (we loved Wreck it Ralph), making pancakes & generally making a mess! However, I did find time at the weekend to make some of these cute pineapple hearts...
