Crochet Pattern - Jubilee Crown

Crochet Pattern - Jubilee Crown

I wanted to crochet some Crowns for our Jubilee celebrations this weekend and I found some lovely crown patterns online but after making a few up they just didn't match what I had in my head. I didn't just want crowns I wanted a crown that reminded me of HRH Queen Elizabeth II...

Crochet - Flower Bookmark Pattern

Crochet - Flower Bookmark Pattern

I managed to write two crochet patterns last week and after all that mind exhaustion, and the fact I am still trying to shake my 'man' cold, I didnt really feel like crocheting much over the weekend.  But I have got a small project (even smaller than you will usually find here!) to share today...

Crochet - Collar Pattern

Crochet - Collar Pattern

I have finally finished writing out and taking photos for the crochet collar pattern I promised.  It's been completely mad here this week, we've had a birthday, a shower disaster resulting in some missing ceiling and I have a man cold and we all know how bad they can be!

Anyway it's finished and I really hope you enjoy making them...

Crochet - Collar

Crochet - Collar

What a glorious weekend! It wasn't even that Sunny here but it was dry for two whole days that must be a first in over a month now!  We spent the weekend in the garden pottering, planting, playing and crocheting (well I did).  We also managed to get out to some car boot sales and found a few treats for the garden so I was very happy.

I took advantage of the sun by getting some photos of my latest crochet obsession; collars...

Crochet - Granny Triangle Bunting Pattern

Crochet - Granny Triangle Bunting Pattern

After my last post I had a couple of requests for the pattern for my crochet Granny Bunting.  I hadn't posted it as I wasn't completely happy as they were doming slightly but I've gone back over it and made a few adjustments and they are better; although I think they will still need blocking...

Crochet - Granny Triangles

We've had a very hectic couple of weeks here and this week seems to be going the same way! But I've managed to complete a few small projects and last week was the week of the granny triangle...

Crochet - Mouse Pattern

Mice in a Tub - A Small Project

Crochet - Mouse Pattern

I've been very easily distracted this last week and have started several projects but over the weekend I was inspired by this post from Teen Granny and an article in Country Living Magazine featuring some mini felt match-box mice from 'The Homemade Home For Children' by Sania Pell; so I thought i'd have a go at some crochet mice...

Crochet Pattern - Coasters

A quick birthday gift

Crochet Pattern - Coasters

The chaos of Easter break is over, the children have gone back to school and Lulu and I are slipping back into a routine (I have a love/hate relationship with routine!) I have a couple of crochet projects on the go at the moment and I'm also working on a few orders but last night I stopped it all to make a little birthday gift for a friend.  I wanted to crochet her something pretty for her house and I'd seen lots of gorgeous coaster sets online so I had a look at some patterns and set out to make a set...

Crochet - An Easter Bonnet

...and a Mini Egg pattern!

Crochet - An Easter Bonnet

I've been working on decorating an Easter Bonnet for Lulu this week.  It's been a while since I've been able to do one as K has long outgrown the tradition and Oli refused point blank to wear a bonnet!  So I've had loads of fun crocheting little flowers and eggs to adorn her bonnet...

Crochet - Slippers

...and a mini pom pom tutorial!

Crochet - Slippers

Hello, I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend, what glorious weather we've had!  We've been making the most of the garden this weekend and I also got to go and have a wander around a local vintage and flea fair which is one of my favourite things to do on a Sunday morning.

I've not managed to get much done in the way of projects but I did get one thing ticked off my 'to make' list and that was these cute slippers for Lulu...
