Free Crochet Pattern - Skinny Hearts

Free Crochet Pattern - Skinny Hearts

I'm so happy it's finally February; January always feels like the longest month! With Valentines Day around the corner I've been inspired by hearts. There are some great patterns for crochet hanging hearts about and I've tried quite a few. But this year I really wanted to have a go at making some hearts that were more like the doodle hearts K and I so often draw...

A Crochet Giveaway

Rico Design Crochet Bruno Bear Kit

A Crochet Giveaway

I have a slightly different post today. It occurred to me earlier this month that I have now been writing this blog for 2 years! Those two years have flown by but I've enjoyed looking back at the projects I've made, the things I've learnt and how my family has grown. I've also enjoyed interacting with you all about projects and patterns so by way of thanks and to celebrate I thought I'd do a small giveaway...

Snow and Stuff...

and some crochet work in progress

Snow and Stuff...

It's been SNOWING here (well it's been snowing mostly everywhere in the UK). The children were up earlier than Christmas day on Friday morning, looking out for the heavy snow that had been forecast. For once the British weather did not let them down! 

Schools were closed so I didn't manage to finish the projects I was working on but that was okay because it was SNOWING...

Crochet Pattern - Sweet Decoration

Crochet Candy...

Crochet Pattern - Sweet Decoration

I was playing around with some new yarn the other night and for some reason it made me think of sweets so I attempted to crochet one. However, once I had finished I felt the yarn was more suited to gloves or socks but I really liked my little sweetie so I decided to make a few more in cotton for my Christmas tree...

Crochet - The Good, bad and The Unbelievable

It's been a week of ups and downs here. It's so easy to write about the things I've made that have worked but that is not always the way things go...

Crochet - Gingerbread House

A weekend project...

Crochet - Gingerbread House

We had a quiet sort of weekend so I spent some time browsing the Internet for crochet gingerbread patterns after a friend and I were discussing how to make them, I got completely sidetracked when I came across this gorgeous pattern for a gingerbread house and knew I had to make it...

Crochet Pattern - Jar cosy

Crochet Pattern - Jar cosy

I've been seeing lot's of lovely crochet jar cosies used for tea lights recently, I think it must be something about the winter months that just makes me want to make everything look warm and cosy, so I decided to have a go at some. 

I've also found they are brilliant for practising new stitch patterns...
