Sunshine Baby Blanket

I’ve been having a tidy up and a clear out just to see how much yarn I have and searching for unfinished items. I opened a bag and found a ball of cream DK yarn and a ball of multicoloured yarn. As it was Friday and good weather predicted I launched into a baby blanket […]

Feeling all Emoji-onal 

At last crafting emojis have happened. You can buy them in the App Store for around £1.99 and there are emojis for sewing, crochet, knitting, craft themed words and phrases including “shut up I’m counting” . The smiley faces are balls of yarn including a ninja ball. My crafting friend and I have been messaging […]

Celebration table runner

Occasionally I like to get the sewing machine out. Every birthday as I hang my home made bunting I feel a disappointment as I look at the table and there is only a disposable birthday table cloth in whatever theme I’ve chosen for the party. So when I saw a load of Dorma white linen […]

A nice way to say thank you

My dear friend and fellow crafter also occasionally takes in waifs and strays of the four legged kind. Recently while I was away celebrating Mr Husband’s birthday she had the responsibility of our rather lively dog Naughty Lucas teaching him to be nice to cats and even bringing him to work! (She does works as […]

Edward’s Menagerie

   At last I’ve finally made a lovely bunny from this super book of crochet animals. Edward’s Menagerie is written by Lucy Toft and her designs are of cute long limbed animals ideally to be stitched from alpaca yarn from the Toft farm itself. I bought this book very shortly after learning to crochet and […]

Joining the Magic Circle

Joining the magic circle doesn’t mean that I have filled the vacancy sadly left by the passing of Paul Daniels. No, I’ve finally learnt how to begin crochet using the magic circle method.  But it’s so easy I hear you cry.  Not for me.  But thanks to a link on Pinterest I finally have it […]

Crochet Emojis

   Thanks to Dr W who sent me this by email yesterday.  Emojis always annoy me as there are no craft related icons except for a pair of scissors, ✂️, so this selection will have to do.  I can assure you I rarely leave a wool shop looking like this 😇 I’m just finishing off […]

Antique Rose Granny Square Baby Blanket

Last weekend I discovered the most fabulous well stocked yarn store, The Wool Shop, in Newcastle Conty Down. There was a great range of all colours, manufactures, styles and price range. There are sofas at the back of the shop – a crèche for men who venture across the threshold. It was all very tempting! […]
