Crochet - Jar Cosy

Jar Covers

Crochet - Jar Cosy

Whilst browsing Pinterest a while back I came some gorgeous pictures of crochet jar covers used to turn old jars into tea light holders and promptly put them on my ever-growing list of things to make, after a little hunt of the internet I managed to find one that I liked the look of.  

I was so pleased with the result that after the first one I got a little addicted and carried on making them...

Crochet - Leftovers

A small crochet project

Crochet - Leftovers

Well that's nearly it for half term, the children are currently on a TD day and then tomorrow it's back to normality. Part of me craves the peace that comes with the children being at school the other part of me dreads the routine. I've not found the time to do much crochet at all but one small project I did complete was made with the crocheted leftovers from my last cushion cover...

Valentines Crochet - Table Confetti

Happy Valentines 2012

Valentines Crochet - Table Confetti

I've crocheted lots of hearts before for bunting and embellishments but these are by far the easiest and quickest hearts I have ever made.  As I set about creating them I soon had a pile that would have made more hair clips than Lulu would ever wear and wondered what else I could use them for.  They looked great all over the table and then it came to me; 'Table Confetti' (I know my mind is just crazy sometimes) but this makes such a gorgeous decoration that I just had to share...

Crochet - A New Cushion

Crochet - A New Cushion

Hello February you are very welcome here!  

I've been working on loads of little crochet projects over the winter.  My crochet buddy and I are planning on doing our first craft fair this year so we've been working on lots of new ideas. I'm feeling very positive and creative and have hugely enjoyed being able to try out new ideas and seeing them come together (some not all).

One of the things we are making lots of are cushion covers as they are easy and quick to make and are a great way to experiment with different colours/patterns...

Welcome 2012

Field of Light Exhibition - Holburne Museum

Welcome 2012

Happy New Year!

It's going to be a good one (here's hoping)...I've made a few simple resolutions this year and they pretty much resemble last years...Exercise more, learn more, see more etc as you can see they are pretty broad ;) I do believe in setting yourself goals short term & long term and while my children are young they are pretty simple goals but that's ok.  I feel i've learnt loads this year from learning to play chess (I got a bit nervous when my 5 year old picked it up quicker than me!) to learning to crochet.  The latter has had such a positive impact on my life and given me a chance to be creative again!

So to celebrate the new year we took the children to see Bruce Munro's Field of Light exhibition at The Holburne Museum...
