As mentioned previously, we've had a little added stress in our lives lately and I found a little bit of crochet was wondrously relaxing...And of course I taught an aran crochet evening class the other day and LOVED IT!!!!Such a buzz, I wish I could do lots and lots more of it. The excitement of the ladies as they realised they could do textures like basketweave, ribbing , bobbles and cables as infectious and really rewarding.
Then on Mother's Day I had a little playtime with a pattern I had found difficult and perplexing a few years ago so I thought I'd give it another try: a floral trellis fabric from my old Harmony Guide.
In a Dropps design sockwool and a 3mm hook.....Tricky at first but I think I got there in the end?
Hello and welcome to my homely world in a small Oxfordshire town in 2013.I am a full- time working mum.
Very proud of 2 gorgeous girls , a fabulous if very stubborn wire haired standard dachshund bitch and her daughter : the daughter takes after her dad so they are very different; a wonderful( well 99% of the time anyway) and long suffering husband.
This is to be my diary of events for a creative crafting sort of person with all the happenings that occur in this day and age in English family life.I am very much learning as I go along, my eldest is my first at all the things that occur in a young person's life as it's all very different from when I was a little girl and I did not grow up in England.
Totally obsessed with textiles and the making of things- anything!
My passion is to make things with yarn or fabric or thread : any textile crafts or beads too.
