Crochet - A New Hat for Lulu

and a trip to the lighthouse

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...

Free Crochet Pattern - Skinny Hearts

Free Crochet Pattern - Skinny Hearts

I'm so happy it's finally February; January always feels like the longest month! With Valentines Day around the corner I've been inspired by hearts. There are some great patterns for crochet hanging hearts about and I've tried quite a few. But this year I really wanted to have a go at making some hearts that were more like the doodle hearts K and I so often draw...

A Crochet Giveaway

Rico Design Crochet Bruno Bear Kit

A Crochet Giveaway

I have a slightly different post today. It occurred to me earlier this month that I have now been writing this blog for 2 years! Those two years have flown by but I've enjoyed looking back at the projects I've made, the things I've learnt and how my family has grown. I've also enjoyed interacting with you all about projects and patterns so by way of thanks and to celebrate I thought I'd do a small giveaway...

Snow and Stuff...

and some crochet work in progress

Snow and Stuff...

It's been SNOWING here (well it's been snowing mostly everywhere in the UK). The children were up earlier than Christmas day on Friday morning, looking out for the heavy snow that had been forecast. For once the British weather did not let them down! 

Schools were closed so I didn't manage to finish the projects I was working on but that was okay because it was SNOWING...

Crochet Pattern - Sweet Decoration

Crochet Candy...

Crochet Pattern - Sweet Decoration

I was playing around with some new yarn the other night and for some reason it made me think of sweets so I attempted to crochet one. However, once I had finished I felt the yarn was more suited to gloves or socks but I really liked my little sweetie so I decided to make a few more in cotton for my Christmas tree...

Crochet - The Good, bad and The Unbelievable

It's been a week of ups and downs here. It's so easy to write about the things I've made that have worked but that is not always the way things go...

Crochet - Gingerbread House

A weekend project...

Crochet - Gingerbread House

We had a quiet sort of weekend so I spent some time browsing the Internet for crochet gingerbread patterns after a friend and I were discussing how to make them, I got completely sidetracked when I came across this gorgeous pattern for a gingerbread house and knew I had to make it...
