Crochet: Something Finished

A new cardi for Lulu

Crochet: Something Finished

Hello. I feel like the past few weeks have passed in a blur; my days have been full of work, crochet, illness and the everyday dramas such as lost school shoes/jumpers/coats and forgotten appointments/lunches/PE kits - I'm counting down the days till half term already ;)

But amongst the chaos, in that precious hour before finally falling into bed, I've been working on the sweetest cardigan for Lulu...

Crochet: Tea Cosies

Crochet: Tea Cosies

I feel like I have been crocheting non-stop for the past few weeks. Last weekend a friend and I put together a crochet stall at a local fair; it was good fun, but lots of work. I've also been busy working on a couple of other projects that aren't ready to be published yet so today I thought I'd share a couple of tea cosies I've made up recently...

Anchor Freccia Colorful World

Anchor Freccia Colorful World

Over the summer holidays, I received a very sweet email from Coats Crafts asking if I would like to try a new promotion they were running called Anchor Freccia Colorful World. The kit they offered to send included a ball of Anchor Freccia cotton, a 1.5 mm crochet hook, a metal chain and instruction leaflet with two designs for a crochet a necklace.

I'm not used to crocheting with fine thread so I thought it would be a great opportunity to practice some delicate crochet...

Cornwall {2013}

Summer Lovin'

Hello - It's been a while! I've spent the summer enjoying being home with the children. We've enjoyed a week in Cornwall with some beautiful weather (for a change), weddings, family celebrations and a lot of just hanging out ;)
