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...

Easter Break {2012}

Disneyland Paris & New Additions

Easter Break {2012}

We have had a lovely & exhausting Easter break, we've caught up with family and friends, hunted for easter eggs, baked, played and made a mess!  But the most exciting thing we did over the holidays was a trip to Disneyland Paris...

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...

Thrifty Finds

Thrifty Finds

I mentioned we managed to have a wander around a flea market early Sunday morning and that I love to do this.  I'm happy that it is once again car boot 'season' as we love to have a wander around them AND I desperately need to de-clutter (it's a double edged sword!).

We came home with a few good finds sunday...

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...
