Pom-Pom Tea Cosy

Pom-Pom Tea Cosy

A while ago I went along to a Jamie at Home party. I fell in love with a big yellow teapot that was sitting snug inside a lovely bright crochet tea cosy. I ended up buying the teapot but I just couldn't justify buying the cosy when I knew I would get more satisfaction (and save some pennies) if I made one myself...

Paper Mache Hot Air Balloons

And a bit of a catch up...

Paper Mache Hot Air Balloons

Hello! It feels like a very long time since I've posted anything here. I have been busy crocheting, although recently my efforts have been focused on designs for other people. This has been both exciting and challenging. I have enjoyed being able to pin down some of my ideas into new projects - it has taken me out of my comfort zone but this is a good thing!

Anyway I thought I'd stop by quickly today to share some of the Easter crafting the children (and I) enjoyed...

Myboshi Yarn Review

Myboshi Yarn Review

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas. We've had a lovely few days with friends and family. I've enjoyed having everyone at home together so much. As always the days leading up to Christmas were hectic. The storms have made travelling hard as roads have been flooded. But it's been nice to have an excuse to hole up inside - I'm looking forward to catching up on some festive TV and all the blogs I have missed reading this past month.
