Candy Cane Holder

This particular candy cane holder has been made for my daughter, but I do make and sell these on Etsy and Ebay.  They are £1.50 each plus p&p and come with the candy cane (flavour and colour may be different to the one shown, it's just what I am able to purchase)

Crochet Market Bag

I followed Mikey's tutorial for this market bag and found it was fairly easy to do.
The base was a bit more complicated and needed more concentration, but the rest of the bag was quick to make.
I didn't want the same handle and it was a case of trial and error as to how I ended up finishing it.
I'm definitely going to make some more in different colours and maybe make them a little bigger.

Yellow Dishcloths

I thought I'd do some solid colour dishcloths with a different colour border. 
I'm enjoying making these dishcloths and have plans in my head for Christmas designs.

Crochet Scrubbie

I loved making this scrubbie, it was so quick and easy to do.
I think I might be making some for Christmas.

Black and Grey Greetings Card

I really enjoyed making this card, it just shouted at me to make in shades of grey and black.

Ballerina and Butterflies Card

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card.  I think it's delicate and elegant.

Birthday Poppies

I really enjoyed doing this technique card and will certainly be doing some more techniques like this on future cards.

Multi Pink Dishcloth

I'm loving making dishcloths.  This is a lovely pink mix cotton and the design has turned out really nicely.

Octagonal Dishcloth

Octagonal dishcloth or pot holder.
I am selling these to raise some much needed funds, after the NHS decided they couldn't do the operation.
You'll find them here

Pastel Bookmark

Similar to the bookmark I made yesterday, but this is acrylic yarn, not cotton.

So delicate and would make a perfect gift for anyone.

Blue and White Bookmark

Lovely bookmark, perfect for Father's Day or for a teacher's gift.
Soft and lightweight and can be easily washed as it's made with 100% cotton.

Grey/White Baby Blanket

Grey/white wool/acrylic mix blanket.  It was so soft to work with and feels so warm.
I have loved every minute of this blanket.

My First Dishcloth Design

This is my own design for a dishcloth and I hope there will be many more different styles to come.  I'm also thinking about Christmas designs (ok I know that's still quite a way off, but I hold a "Christmas in July" event for anyone who likes to send presents to their loved ones by surface mail and it's always a popular event)

Pink Mix Baby Blanket

I'm loving this blanket.
I've got to get it finished, as I think I'm going to put it in the knitting/crochet section at the horticultural show next month.

Call The Midwife Blanket

I have attempted the Call The Midwife inspired blanket.
I can't say I'm finding it that easy, but I will persevere.

This is a new blanket for a baby using a grey/white wool/acrylic mix.  It's so soft and works up so quickly.

Knitted Jacket Second Front Panel

The second front panel completed.  Just the sleeves to do and then work out how to put it together.

Monday, 11 April 2016


I have been making dishcloths.  Some I'm selling to raise some money for charity and some are for presents.

I have designed a few patterns, which I will load as soon as I've done them.

They will come in sets of two for selling and hopefully will raise some much needed funds.

Baby Blanket Finished

I have finished this baby blanket.  Absolutely loving the colour changes.

I plan on giving it to my Cousin's new little baby who was born last week.

Craft Workshop

During the Easter half term, my Mum, Daughter and I went to a craft workshop. We had chosen the words we wanted to do in advance.

My Daughter chose dream and did her own thing.  Everyone seemed very impressed and all thought hers was the best at the end of the day.

I chose Home.  These are similar to the colours I have in my living room and dining room and I'm really pleased with the end results.

A close up of the wording on the E.  Find your wings and fly

My Mum also chose Dream and her colours were very similar to mine.

Knitted Jacket

This is the back panel.  Finished 20 March.
It knits up really nicely and the yarn is so lovely and soft to work with.

Easter Chick

I did this last night and I had the intention of putting it on a card, but my daughter had other ideas and has 'saved' it.

New Start all for Me

Last month I bought some wool and got to choose a free pattern to go with it, so I decided to get this jacket pattern.
I started it a few days ago and did a bit more last night.  This is my progress so far.  I'm hoping to get it finished by the time the Easter half term arrives, so that I can get mum to help me put it together.

Crochet Hat

My very first crochet hat and I'm thrilled with it.
It's a variegated yarn and I love the way it has worked for this hat.
I'll definitely be making more in different colours.

Square 9

This one took me three attempts to get right on round 3 and 4 and I had to start it from scratch twice.  I like the look of it, but I don't think I'll be doing another one.

Happy Valentines Day

I have never done a graphghan before and found this freebie design to try.
Thought I'd give this a go and see how it went.
I'm going to do a plain back to it and make it into a cushion and will put it up for auction to try and help raise some funds for a friend's little niece's vital physiotherapy after her operation - the NHS won't fund it.  We're trying to raise £30,000.  Lily's Little Legs
