June 9th was my birthday. I might be 34 now, but I made a point of telling everyone that I like to be made a fuss of! It’s the one day of the year that’s all about me!! I came into work to find my office had been covered in balloons and banners and had… Continue reading Birthday Madness!
I had taken a bit of a break from amigurumi recently whilst I made a few blankets. My best pal requested a fox for her birthday and I remember seeing one in a book I borrowed from the library a few months ago. I went back and took it out again, it is Crocheted Wild Animals… Continue reading Crocheted Wild Animals – Vanessa Mooncie
So, it would seem the Virus Shawl is pretty hot right now. Absolutely loads of people were attempting it on the Bella Coco facebook group I’m a member of and I really loved that way it looked. Despite the fact I still have a C2C blanket on the go, I really couldn’t wait to try it.… Continue reading The Virus Shawl
I’m a Gemini, so by my very nature (if you believe in that sort of thing) I am a fickle person. In most other areas of my life this is quite true. I start doing something, get completely engrossed in it, then just as quickly find a passion for something else. The only thing that… Continue reading I’m a bit of a giver upper…
Technically, its not a couple, it’s 3 which I believe would be classed as ‘a few’, but that didn’t sound as good. Anyway, let’s not get into semantics…….. I really wanted to take a little break from the mermaid tail. Don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying it, but the repetitiveness was getting to me slightly… Continue reading A Couple of Cup Cosies
Well, an elephant to use its official title! Firstly, I must apologise. I did an absolutely terrible job of photographing this project as I was doing it. Truth be told, I do the majority of my crocheting in the evening, so I never have any natural light in which to take photos, so again I… Continue reading It’s a Heffalump!
Whenever I near the end of a project, my mind starts thinking about what I’m going to do next. As seems to be a recurring theme, I saw a picture on facebook of an old friend and his baby daughter whose nickname is ‘bearcub’. This inspired me to make her a bear of her very… Continue reading My own build a bear workshop
Firstly, a very happy new year to everyone! I hope it brings you inspiration, happiness and as much yarn as you could ever want! I am very lucky to follow my nan when it comes to being crafty and creative. She is an extremely talented, self taught knitter and crocheter and I was very lucky… Continue reading Crafty Christmas Haul
With Christmas fast approaching, I was aware of the fact I needed to get one of my very best friends a gift. Her favourite colour is purple and I just happened to see the most beautiful sparkly purple yarn on offer, 3 balls for £2. I figured a scarf would be the quickest and most useful… Continue reading A few Christmas makes
Sorry, bad post title. but I couldn’t help it. So, after finishing the wings, I moved onto the beak, flower and eyes. They were all easy enough, but when it came to the blue around the eyes, I was introduced to a stitch I’d never done before; it’s called ‘crab stitch’ or ‘reverse double crochet’. The… Continue reading Owl always love you….
